Day by Day what to expect - some launching on a monday, lots of energy on a tuesday, serious debating at the GMB on a wednesday, much biodiversity on a thursday, winners alright by friday.

Once again Green Week promises to be educational, entertaining and fun with some competitions along the way, with 6 Trinity Ball tickets and other prizes up for grabs. The myriad of events will include talks, workshops, walks, presentations, debates and the Green Fair. Exhibitions will include an Energy Aware display, Foodcloud, the Community Gardens of Dublin, recycling and waste management among others.
The societies are providing the entertainment including a ‘bicycle fashion show’, ‘craft brewing’, ‘green pub quiz’, ‘biodiversity bingo’, ‘green make & do’. DUPA are running the annual best green photo competition and VISARTS are organising a competition for the design of artwork for the recycling truck. They also plan to create a green sculpture from cans & plastic bottles to go on display on the 21st. The Sports Centre, Library and Catering are also playing their part with some green initiatives.

Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday - Thursday - Friday.

Green Week not only offers advice on how we can all make small changes to ensure a more sustainable future but also gives us an opportunity to meet, share ideas and discover aspects of College that perhaps we did not know before.

Once more, Green Week has great support from the SU and the GSU and in particular the following societies: Environmental, Engineering, Botany, DUPA, Visual Arts, Bram Stoker, Historical, Philosophical and St. Vincent de Paul.

Finally, GCC is encouraging everyone to get involved in Green Week, you are sure to learn something, mostly likely be entertained and you may just win a prize.
