Glasgow Goes Green

About Glasgow Goes Green

Have you ever thought about planting something in your garden but have no idea how to start? Do you sometimes feel like you’re losing your conscience shopping for mass made and imported products? Or have you ever just felt like asking a bee keeper, how they sneak into bee hives without ending up at the hospital? Then this is probably the festival for you.

A group of students and environmental officers from Glasgow’s universities have come together again, to bring you a festival filled with green workshops, zero waste lifestyle suggestions, local veggies and good people. Glasgow University Environmental Sustainability Team (GUEST) and environmental sustainability officers from Glasgow School of Art, University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University have been cooking up a plan, to show you how to ‘Love Local Life’.

For one day, on the 16th of February, The Art School will transform into a place where you will be able to find out how to live a sustainable life with local and community resources. They have prepared for you, a day where you can explore the world of eco-friendly societies and social enterprises, that are here to better Glasgow’s environment. At the event, you can expect to meet a whole heap of people from gardeners or beekeepers, bike mechanics and crafty artists, to dumpster divers and food rescuers. Stalls will be offering workshops and food that will make you think about your consumption patterns, and re-think living locally.

Oh, and of course, there will be an after party! The Art School will be taken over at night, to bring all of the festival attendees together for a celebration. Don’t be alarmed when you receive a green drink from the bartender, that’s definitely a part of going green.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Goes Green are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
