Green accolade for QUB scheme

A green initiative spearheaded by Belfast City Council and Queen’s University Elms Village has won top honours at a European awards ceremony.

‘Green Week’ was named Best Business Project in the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) awards, which were held in Paris, beating off competition from 2,500 other entries from businesses in 30 countries.

Belfast City Council is the national organiser for EWWR, coordinating environmentally- friendly projects across Northern Ireland during the week-long campaign in November.

Queen’s Elms Village organised a series of environmental initiatives aimed at the 1,800 students and 60 staff who live in the south Belfast halls of residence.
