NWU hosts successful Value your Environment campaign

The North-West University (NWU) recently hosted its annual Value your Environment campaign, which aims to create awareness on various environmental issues that have an impact on society.

The week-long campaign was held on the NWU’s campus in Potchefstroom.

Students had the opportunity to participate by planting trees and presenting a fashion show using recyclable materials. “The main aim of this campaign was to encourage students to participate and to reduce their carbon footprint,” says Mario Matos, Student Campus Council (SCC) member for current affairs.

Mario says that the SCC also made use of this opportunity to promote the values of the university.

“I’m very satisfied with the outcome of the event. My team and I approached the project differently this year by trying to make it more appealing to students and to encourage them to actively take part in maintaining a green lifestyle. We are also looking into taking this initiative to our sister campuses in the near future,” concluded Mario.
