Green Week 2011

This year's Green Week took place from 21-25 November to co-incide with European Week for Waste Reduction. It was the second annual Queen's Green Week which is part of a university-wide campaign to raise awareness of environmental issues among staff and students and encourage them to think about their behaviour and do their bit to reduce their carbon emissions.

Take a look at some of the things which happened as part of Green Week.

A number of events are taking place at the Elms Village during the week. To find out what's happening, click on the link: Green Week at the Elms Village
