This week is the opportunity to be more green, more efficient and more aware: Coventry's Green Week commences on 6th March and lasts until the 12th. There are a lot of local events that anyone can get involved with and the best part they're FREE!

The Green Week is packed with events and activities. Some of the events are happening in conjunction with Warwick SU, but most are being organised by Coventry Council. It's hoped that the events and programmes will help promote and increase awareness of sustainability and environmental issues.
