There was plenty of activity going on at Lancaster University recently, from a free healthy and sustainable ‘Edible Campus’ breakfast at the Sports Centre to volunteering at the Eco Hub.

Green Lancaster is a collaboration between Lancaster University and Lancaster University Student Union (LUSU) designed to encourage students and staff to live and work with sustainability in mind, whether that’s cycling to work, car sharing, learning more about the eco-innovation happening around campus, carbon and energy reduction, recycling or feeding the chickens once a week.

The week started with a launch event giving staff and students more information about what Green Lancaster is and what they can do to be involved. The rest of the week included a free healthy and sustainable ‘Edible Campus Breakfast’ at the Sports Centre, Dr Bike helping those who travel sustainably fix any niggles on their bike and volunteers attending the Eco Hub to help create new raised beds and tend to the vegetables.

The week finished with ‘Green Lancaster do Jack and the Beanstalk,’ in the form of jacket potatoes and bean salad at the Eco Hub, a celebratory lunch for all to mark the end of a hugely successful week.
