Isle of Man College goes green 6 October 2008

Next week (October 13-17) has been dubbed ‘Green Week’ at the Isle of Man College.

During the week, students, staff and several local agencies will look at the impact the College has on the environment in several areas including waste, energy, transport, food and biodiversity.

Ronald Barr, Deputy Principal, said: Green week

'As one of the largest public buildings on the Island, the management of the College is committed to taking a good, hard look at the size of our environmental footprint. That is what Green Week is about. The next step will be to look at what we can do to reduce that footprint.'

A level student, Sami-Jaine Martin, one of the organisers of the week, said:

'The environment is something a lot of students feel passionate about and we want to encourage everyone in College to play their part in reducing the amount of waste we produce and the energy we use and improving our surroundings.'

The following awareness sessions will be held during the week between 12.15 and 1.30 in the College foyer:

Monday - Food: the impact on your environment

Tuesday - Reducing waste and recycling

Wednesday - Biodiversity

Thursday - Energy use and transport.

Even the College's banner has gone green for the week (see below download).
