More Green Less Screen!

Natalie Chivers, Curator of Treborth Botanic Garden adds the first 'green promise'.Natalie Chivers, Curator of Treborth Botanic Garden adds the first 'green promise'.Could you put down your devices and enjoy nature?

That was the question that Bangor University’s Sustainability Lab and Botanic Garden asked students, staff and the local community last week as part of the UK University community’s national celebration of Go Green Week.

When you step outside into a green space or give an indoor plant a home it gives you so much - stress relief, clean air, inspiration, relaxation, lushness, beauty, joy.  To encourage people to Go Green, “More Green Less Screen” promises trees went up all over the University including at the University’s Botanic Garden, all four libraries, the International Students’ Centre, The Students’ Union, and Pontio’s Co-working.  Passers-by were asked to write their “More Green Less Screen” promise on a leaf or an apple, take a selfie with their promise, share it on social media, then Go Green for the Week!

Bangor’s Go Green Week is part of Bangor University’s Sustainability Carnifal, a showcase of the range and variety of sustainability-related events that run in a typical month at Bangor University – a month-long extravaganza of ordinary events!
