Under the slogan “Ambassadors for the climate”, the institutions that make up the Group 9 of Universities organised a Green Week from the 5th to the 12th of June. You can check the consortium’s common programme and the calendar of activities.
This was an activity prior to the European Researchers’ Night 2021, which aimed to show society the commitment of universities to achieve a more sustainable economy.
This year’s European Researchers’ Night will be dedicated to the European Green Pact. The activities promoted by the G-9 universities will focus on sustainability and the environment with two main dates: a pre-event, Green Week, which took place in June, coinciding with World Environment Day (5 June) and World Oceans Day (8 June) and the main event, which will be held across Europe on 24 September.
Conferences, exhibitions, workshops on insects, plants, climate change, environmental awareness, marathons on invasive flora, educational walks, gymkhanas, escape-rooms, scientific monologues, audiovisuals, all formats of scientific dissemination come together in the Green Week to serve one goal: to show society how science and researchers help to create a sustainable future. There were more than 50 activities in which planet Earth was the undisputed protagonist. All this took place in a close environment that allowed dialogue with researchers and offered some face-to-face activities in compliance with the Covid protocols applicable in each case.
The Green Week programme began on World Environment Day itself with a series of activities focused on the protection of biodiversity, including a poster competition “What will Europe be like in 2050?” in which students in non-university education could participate.
