Become an ‘Eco Hero’ with college

DUMFRIES and Galloway College is calling on everyone in its staff, students, and wider community to become an ‘Eco Hero’.

As part of a series of events to celebrate Scotland’s climate week, 13-17 September, the South of Scotland college is urging everyone to consider the actions they have taken that will help society achieve a net-zero future.

And they want stories about people who have been going the extra mile, from using a reusable coffee cup for their morning coffee or cleaning rubbish from a beach.

Three prizes of a £50 Costa Coffee voucher are up for grabs for the best stories of caring for the climate.

The draw is open to everyone and submissions can be made to the Dumfries and Galloway College Facebook and Twitter pages by commenting on the Eco Hero posts.

Winners will be announced after September 19 and the contest can be followed using the #ecohero.

Launching the hero hunt, principal Joanna Campbell said: “We know that we can all take small steps to help benefit our environment, and we at Dumfries and Galloway College are keen to hear about them.

“That’s why we’re encouraging everyone in our community to tell us how they’ve been Eco Heroes.

“I want to encourage everyone to think about what they’re doing to promote a clean and green future and to get in touch via our social media.”
