With this in mind, UCT’s Green Campus Initiative (GCI) has decided to bring its annual Green Week – suitably themed Because the World Ends This Year – forward to the first semester.
Part of the Green Campus Initiative (GCI), Green Week kicks off at UCT on 3 October and heralds a full programme of events on campus. To mark the week, Monday Paper has gone green, and so, too, has UCT’s website.
During Green Week, the GCI will promote a couple of new projects, testimony that the five-year student-driven initiative is growing bigger – and better. Among these the Consumer Activism project, which teaches students and staff to be ‘consumer conscious’ by buying products that promote sustainability, and to know their rights as consumers.
