Could you put down your devices and enjoy nature?

That was the question that Bangor University’s Sustainability Lab and Botanic Garden asked students, staff and the local community last week as part of the UK University community’s national celebration of Go Green Week.

Bangor’s Go Green Week is part of Bangor University’s Sustainability Carnifal, a showcase of the range and variety of sustainability-related events that run in a typical month at Bangor University – a month-long extravaganza of ordinary events!
