Monday 3rd May – MUNCH MONDAY
Virtual Nutrition Workshop – 6pm – 7pm
A qualified nutritionist will deliver a short workshop teaching you how to have a healthy diet as an athlete whilst also limiting your environmental impact based on the food you consume.
Tuesday 4th May – TRY TUESDAY
Try something new that will benefit the planet! The options are endless; try walking or cycling somewhere you would usually drive, try picking up some litter in your local area, try switching to a plant based diet for the day.
Wednesday 5th May – WELLNESS WEDNESDAY
Live Virtual Cookalong – 7pm – CANCELLED!!!
We are very sorry to announce that we have had to cancel the cookalong taking place on Wednesday 5th May. Please keep an eye on our social media where we will be posting the recipe so that you can still cook the meal, unfortunately it just won’t be live at the same time as everyone else!
Look after yourself and look after the planet at the same time by participating in our Go Green Week cookalong. There will be two recipes to choose from; one meat and one plant based. We will post the ingredients list a few days before and we hope you can join us in cooking a delicious and nutritious meal that uses locally grown and in season ingredients.
Thursday 6th May – THRIFTING THURSDAY
Think about the products that you own and consider if you could swap them for a more sustainable option, for example switching to using a shampoo bar or bamboo toothbrush. Also think twice before throwing something away – could it be fixed or donated before being chucked in the dustbin and ending up in landfill?
Friday 7th May – FUTURE FRIDAY
We will be watching this insightful Netflix documentary on Friday evening which highlights some high profile vegan athletes and examines the science behind the effect of plant based diets on performance sport. It would be great for you all to watch it as well and let us know what you think!
During the day, also think about a change that you can make now to have a positive impact on the future of the planet.
Saturday 8th May – SUPPORTING SATURDAY
Why not support a green charity on UEA+MOVES or shop at a local green business?
Sunday 9th May – SUSTAINABLE SUNDAY
Look back on the week and think about what you are going to take forward.
We are also organising some litter picks on campus. Gloves and bin bags will be provided. Litter picks will be in groups of 6 in order to abide by COVID-19 regulations. There are 3 time slots available and we predict the litter picks will last approximately 1 hour. You can book your space here.
12pm – 1pm
1.30pm – 2.30pm
3pm – 4pm
Please note this event is weather dependent – in the case of poor weather conditions we will have to cancel.
