Glasgow Goes Green Festival

Around eight years ago, universities in Glasgow started celebrating Go Green Week. Since 2015 we've held an annual combined event featuring workshops and stalls shouting about positive action being taken on climate change. We called it, Glasgow Goes Green.

Our events celebrate all that is ethical on our campuses and in our beautiful city, linking environmental issues to climate and social justice.

Students and organisations across Glasgow gather to show their work, their values and actions to make Glasgow, and the World, a better, greener, cleaner place.

GGG 2023

The theme of this year's festival is GROWTH.

We are proud of our city and excited to think together about what would make Glasgow truly flourish?

Post pandemic and in the midst of a Cost of Living Crisis, how do we grow in harmony with our environment?


Get involved

Our festival begins now with you.  

Our aim is to plant ideas and exchange them. 

This means, we want to know about current community projects and exchange green ideas. Together we will organise a range of events for our Green week, starting on the 13th of March and on the weekend we will celebrate our work with new friends and connections.

Step 3: Bloom

On the last day of Green Week , the 19th of March, we will celebrate growth in Glasgow during Green Week and meet communities within Glasgow who are involved in supporting positive environmental and sustainable practices throughout the city.
