Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.
Tree Planting 1

Stu­dents who take part in an youth lead­er­ship project called My World, My Home’ organ­ised a tree plant­i­ng activ­i­ty at our Bas­ford Cam­pus for World Earth Day, with sup­port from Not­ting­ham Col­lege Stu­dents’ Union and the college’s Envi­ron­men­tal and Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Committee. 

My World, My Home project is pow­ered by Friends of the Earth that works with stu­dents to plan a social action project around sus­tain­abil­i­ty and the environment. 

The stu­dents want­ed to plan trees that pro­duce blos­som and fruit that would attract wildlife and insects. After doing their research and work­ing with a local gar­den cen­tre they sourced 4 trees that have been plant­ed today. 

After the year we have had, it is great to see stu­dents work­ing togeth­er to do some­thing pos­i­tive for the col­lege and the envi­ron­ment. It’s so impor­tant that we give stu­dents the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work togeth­er on projects, and feel empow­ered to make a dif­fer­ence.’ – Liam Perkins, Well­be­ing Coor­di­na­tor for Stu­dent Voice. 

I think it’s impor­tant to try and help pro­tect the envi­ron­ment so join­ing my World my Home was a love­ly club that was so friend­ly and well organ­ised my Han­nah Evans. I have real­ly enjoyed being part of the club and plan­ning the Tree Plant­i­ng event! I hope that this can be a con­tin­u­ing club that attracts more mem­bers to be Eco War­riors — Elsa Lily Novak, Art and Design Foun­da­tion student 

It so nice to see peo­ple tak­ing ini­tia­tive to help our envi­ron­ment . What hap­pened today, on Earth Day, was so beau­ti­ful and I think peo­ple would tru­ly appre­ci­ate it in the future. – Nasi­da Hen­ry A‑Level Student. 

A spe­cial thank you to Simon Hud­son from the Estates Team at Bas­ford for sup­port­ing the stu­dents planting.
