Save Our World Day

Join students from ARU’s Sustainability Society on Wednesday, 27 March for Save Our World Day.

Students are growing more aware of global issues that are affecting our world. ‘Save Our World Day’ aims to increase student’s engagement about these growing concerns, and also provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to help them make a positive change. Join university staff and experts from different fields for a range of activities such as talks, vegan food tasting, mediation, reusable bag printing and a panel debate.

‘Save Our World Day’ aims to raise awareness amongst staff and students about the important of sustainability. The event aims to celebrate the wonders of the earth, and encourage students to make the world a better place to live.

Don't miss The Big Fix Debate at 4pm in COS 313. A team of students will go against ARU staff to attempt to solve the worl'd biggest problems. The audience will decide who wins through an interactive vote! Followed by drinks at Academy at 7:30pm.
