DIT Green Week ? a week of firsts

The week of April 7th-14th will see the first Green Week ever in DIT.  The aim of the week is to raise awareness and provoke debate in DIT about Green issues such as climate change, energy use and planning.  The initiative is the brainchild of two students, Trevor Seery and Stanislav Zamyatin, and was organised by a group of interested students and staff.  Among the many firsts for DIT will be the Irish Film premiere of "Last Call for Planet Earth" which has won a Sustainability Award from the European Commission.  DIT will also be the first college to start the process of obtaining a Green Flag.


Speakers include Dave Wetzel from Transport for London, who championed the congestion charge and will be debating the benefits of Land Valuation Tax.  The packed schedule will include demonstrations of sustainable energy, green cars, debates, comedy, music, film and will also feature broadcaster Eanna Ni Lamhna and poet Ronan O Snodaigh.  For more information see the Green Week Newsletter.
