#ITSFORUS – an event that made a difference
by Danielle Katz and Marcel Clusa
Internationals Go Green and Source to Sea Productions teamed up for an event celebrating what we can all do to make an environmental difference! The #itsforus event featured booths, free giveaways, fun games, and the premier of a short film about how you can save money and the planet!
We have reached a tipping point around the conversation about plastic, single-use items, waste and the wellbeing of people and the planet. #itsforus intends to inspire change around the little actions we can all take to make a difference,” said Danielle Katz, Director of Source to Sea Productions.
The creative forces behind the BU Film Society were there to meet people and talk about the film, free hugs and a free clothing swap of clothes donated by people attending the event were on offer sponsored by Campus Life. The Sustainability Lab came along with its recycling game to sharpen up people’s recycling skills, and people could learn about the Hungry Dragons Food Project with Enactus. There were also opportunities to get involved with volunteering at Undeb Bangor Students’ Union and with community-wide events with Plastic Free Bangor, Capturing our Coast, the North Wales Wildlife Trust, and Gwynedd Council.
Internationals Go Green is excited to help bring together a diverse group to celebrate those making an active effort for a better future.” – said Marcel Clusa, one of the films’ collaborators and part of the Internationals Go Green team.
The event was hosted by Internationals Go Green, a project from the Bangor University International Support Office and Source to Sea Productions, in collaboration with Campus Life, The Sustainability Lab, Enactus, Bangor Students’ Union, BU Film Society, Plastic Free Bangor, Capturing our Coast, North Wales Wildlife Trust, and Gwynedd Council.
