Go Green Week

Would you like to save the planet? Over the past 100 years humans have had a hugely detrimental impact on the world around us. Is it time we made a change?

Go Green Week is a national week of action to help raise awareness of environmental issues and to promote more sustainable lifestyles.

At the Guild we want to offer a range of activities, events and experiences to support this.

Go Green Week 2019 will be our biggest and best Go Green Week yet! See the full timetable of events below:
