The University of Worcester, UK, in conjunction with the Worcester City Council, requested our team organize a Go Green Week fair in April, 2018 as part of their joint commitment to creating a more sustainable city. We expanded upon a previous WPI teams Go Green Week model to promote sustainability within the community, focusing on areas such as energy conservation, recycling, reducing plastic and food waste, and promoting the health of the local river. Throughout the event, our team collected surveys to evaluate both the sustainability knowledge and behavior of our sample and compare these results to University sample data. We determined that our sample has a foundation in certain areas of sustainability, and made recommendations for additional sustainability education in the community.
