Interested in writing news articles about green activities?
We have a new opportunity for students to write news articles about their experiences with our Green Team projects, UWE initiatives, or wider world events. If you’ve been to a Green event, or have some thoughts about green events that are taking place, and want to write a news article to feature on our website (with your name attributed to it, of course) then please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or with your completed news pieces.
This can contribute to volunteer hours as well - check out what you can use your volunteer hours for (and opportunities for more volunteering) on our projects page.
