All Open University students are invited to join this session exploring green entrepreneurship. 

Student Voice Week is a celebration of all the different ways that Open University students can get involved in the university's decision-making.

This year the #OUStudentVoiceWeek will run between Saturday 13 and Sunday 21 November. During the week, the OU will host a range of online activities for students to get involved in and have their voices heard. 

This event links to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), which is happening in Glasgow the week before Student Voice Week. 

The session will showcase OU students who have been motivated by their studies to develop green/sustainable initiatives. It will be a chance to hear directly from students about how their OU study has inspired them to drive forward actions that support the goals of COP26.

There will be the opportunity for attendees to ask the students questions in a panel question and answer session after the presentations. Panel members will include the students who have presented, as well as Andy Lane, OU Professor of Environmental Systems, and Richard Blundel, OU Professor of Enterprise and Organisation. 

Book your place via the online registration form for the Green Entrepreneur Showcase. Registration closes at 4pm on Tuesday 16 November. (Event is for OU students only.)

There is a wide range of free online resources exploring climate change and the importance of COP26, on the OU’s free learning site OpenLearn
