Keele Green Festival 2022

Keele Green Festival explores how we embed sustainability at Keele.

Keele Green Festival: 21 - 27 March 2022

This year's Green Festival will be a mixture of in-person and online activities in celebration of sustainability, people leading in embedding sustainability across the university, and the key projects based on campus that are in efforts to engage the population with sustainability and reduce carbon emissions that have impact locally and nationally.

The programme will include talks, a Climate Café, social media takeovers with our student Sustainability Interns, gardening sessions and a tour of the new solar farm. There will also be a range of wellbeing activities and collaborations with Root & Branch, KeeleSU, Residence Life, Grounds, Keele Catering, ArtsKeele and the KPA. The Library has a display stand in the foyer of the Library.

To view the details for the events, please visit the Keele App. No booking is required unless otherwise stated.
