What is Sustainability Week?

Sustainability week is a week of sustainability themed events and awareness raising activities run by The SU, the Green Committee and student groups, across Penryn and Falmouth Campus

Sustainability is more important than ever going into 2022, and we all have our parts to play to create a better world for People and Planet. Shifting towards more sustainable ways of thinking and acting is easier than you think, and we’ve got a host of events to help you do so!

Explore what’s in store for Sustainability Week, a campaign we’re co-delivering with the Universities, and join us for a series of events set to enable you to realise your personal impacts, inspire you to want to adopt sustainable changes in your life, and empower you with the knowledge & skills you need to do so!
