Become an Eco Hero
15 September 2021
Dumfries and Galloway College is calling on everyone in its staff, students, and wider community to become an Eco Hero.
As part of a series of events to celebrate Scotland’s climate week, 13-17 September, the South of Scotland college is urging everyone to consider the actions they have taken that will help our society achieve a net-zero future.
The college is asking for stories about people who have been going the extra mile, from using a reusable coffee cup for their morning coffee or cleaning rubbish from a beach, to come forward and share them.
Three prizes of a £50 Costa Coffee voucher are up for grabs for the best stories of caring for the climate.
Winners will be announced after 19 September and the contest can be followed using the #ecohero.
Dumfries and Galloway College is proud of its record of environmentalism and promoting the green agenda and especially of the part its staff, students, and stakeholders have played in achieving this.
Principal Joanna Campbell said:
“We know that we can all take small steps to help benefit out environment, and we at Dumfries and Galloway College are keen to hear about them.
“That’s why we’re encouraging everyone in our community to tell us how they’ve been Eco Heroes.
“I want to encourage everyone to think about what they’re doing to promote a clean and green future and to get in touch via our social media.”
