Are you appalled by the excessive amount of litter found around UCL and in London? Do you wish to do something about it?

Then this project is for you! Become a Green Walker by joining one of our litter-picking walks! As a team, we will work together to pick up litter around UCL once a month. All equipment is provided by us and we will brief you before each walk. This will be an opportunity to contribute to reduce the high levels of waste in the big city of London in a fun, original way. The walks will also give you the chance to get to know other volunteers that are interested in environmental issues!
