Business students at Colchester Institute ran their own sustainability day this week.

The annual Bee Green Day promoted local produce, health and wellbeing among students and staff.

Activities included live music, bee keepers, food stalls and games.

The event was arranged as part of the students’ work experience, contributing towards the event management unit within their study programme. Each student had a specific role to play in organising the day.

George Lowe, student project manager and level three student, said: “Our hard work really paid off and I was really pleased with the end result.

“It’s been great to have the good weather on our side, attendance from local businesses, along with students, staff and members of the public trying out different activities and getting involved with different areas of the college.”

Faye Miller, course tutor, added: “Bee Green has been a fantastic opportunity for our students to work on a live project for their course. It has enabled them to work with a real budget, communicate with different departments, external businesses and see their hard work be developed into this prestigious event.
