Sustainable YOU - CANCELLED

Saturday 10th September 2022 10:00am - 3:00pm

Location: Turing Locke

The University of Cambridge community is deeply saddened by the news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen. We have made the decision to cancel this event.


Sustainability is a big theme: but it also starts with You.

Eddington hosts a family friendly event where you can learn tips to lead a more sustainable life.

Discover the intricate details of nature and wildlife in our popular Eddington Ecology walking tours; explore Cambridge’s Vegan Market, practice the circular economy in a local toy-swap, gain insights in a talk by Professor Shailaja Fennell from the Department of Land Economy; and take on some energetic cycling challenges including the try-out show (hop on the saddle of a range of bikes) and cycle sprints: these activities and many more are open to the community.

Our partners from local charities and organisations will be here to provide tips on a range of topics including sustainable travel from the University’s Transport Team, refills to reduce single-use plastics from local business Green Blue You, and local conservation, all of which aims to share knowledge in how to live a greener life.

Sustainability starts with you – join us at Eddington.

This event is part of the University of Cambridge’s Open Cambridge festival 2022.
