Explanation

As students may or may not be aware, the country's ecosystem is in a dying state (along with the rest of the planet). The SU should put funds into massively increasing bio-diverse green spaces.

Wolverhampton has a lot of traffic pollution, more plant life counters the pollution from cars going into the atmosphere. That's just one positive example. Even if it is just the University grounds, and this won't change the overall unfortunate path, promoting eco-friendly urbanism is the way to go. No to harmful pesticides!

The University needs more bio-diverse green spaces across campuses

8:52pm on 15 Feb 19 The main courtyard at Wolverhamton City campus has huge paths which are rarely fullly utilised, a good improvement would be to extend the grass further towards MA and MI. More flower beds, wildflower patches and insect attracting plant species would make the campus courtyard far more interesting, pretty and attractive!
