A fantastic Climate Week Scotland 2019 at Glasgow Kelvin College
The College took part in this year’s Climate Week Scotland by hosting various events at Springburn campus in order to raise awareness on the impacts of Climate Change.
Thank you once again to everyone for coming along and joining us! Your support is really appreciated!
Monday 7th October
A screening of the film ‘Climate Change: The Facts’ was hosted at the Lecture Theatre at Springburn campus. This documentary focuses and explains the many phenomena climate change has caused over the last few years, all over the world.
Many topics were covered, such as the dangers we are already facing (flood, fire, extinction of animal species, etc.) and the future threats. Nevertheless, the documentary highlighted the possibilities of prevention through a radical political, social and cultural change.
It was very inspiring to share ideas with students at the end of the film; this documentary was undeniably scary, astounding and full of hope at the same time. There is no doubt that it gave food for thoughts to our students.
If you missed the film screening but were interested in watching this documentary, you can still find it in the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9WyLPgyuqo
Wednesday 9th October
On Wednesday, we hosted a Fix Your Own Bike session in collaboration with Lambhill stables.
Jenny, the mechanic, helped our students to gain confidence in fixing their own bikes and gave them advice and guidance on how to maintain a bike in good working condition.
There will be more Fix your Own Bike sessions, stay tuned to find out more!
Thursday 10th October
Our ‘Funny bikes’ were back at Springburn campus; these adaptive bikes were provided by a local cycling charity: Free Wheel North.
The main aim of this event was to show how cycling is fun and accessible for everyone.
Students and staff had the opportunity to try out tricycles, twinned bikes and many others with adaptations to suit different abilities and experience.
It was great to see so much enthusiasm from our students. Thanks again to everyone for joining us! We hope you enjoyed as much as we did!
As usual, if you have any questions or comments, please be in touch with Olga, our Campus Cycling Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandra, our Active Travel Officer at email@example.com
These events are organised thanks to the support of the Smarter Choices, Smarter Places Open Fund, delivered by Paths for All.
