Wrexham Glyndwr University is to host a Vegan lunch tomorrow (Tuesday 29 March) which staff and members of the public are welcome to attend. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The event, which is part of Go Green Week, is being hosted by Criminology staff and students who are research active in the area of Green Criminology. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Staff and members of the public are welcome to attend. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Dr Caroline Gorden, Reader in Criminology and Criminal Justice Faculty of Social and Life Sciences, said: “You are invited to taste the future of food at lunch time on Tuesday, March 29 where United Kitchens will be selling a range of delicious plant-based dishes. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“Adopting a plant-based diet is one of the best things you can do to reduce your environmental impact on earth and aid in the prevention of global famine. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“Thankfully, transitioning to a plant-based diet has never been easier as major supermarkets now offer a wide range of foods that are competing with animal-based products when it comes to price, convenience and taste. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“This event will be hosted by Criminology staff and students who are research active in the area of Green Criminology – so not only will you be able to try out some mouth-watering dishes, you will also learn about why and how a plant-based diet can impact so positively on human, animal and planetary health.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Also part of the week-long event, there will be a Green Scavenger Hunt competition around the Wrexham Campus with a chance of winning £50 voucher. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

WGU has a host of events for staff and students throughout the week, including a tour around Wrexham Village to learn what the university is doing to be more sustainable, a here Woodland Wonders nature event at Northop and a beach litter pick at Talacre ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
