Global Opportunities Goes Green

Global Opportunities Goes Green

In a world where sustainability is becoming a more and more important issue, it is essential that we all consider the environmental impact of our actions. While we believe and evidence shows that having a Global Opportunity has a great impact on both your study success and in shaping and challenging you as an individual, we must consider that airline flights are a leading contributor or CO2 emissions.

This is why the Global Opportunities team are excited to share with you some top tips and some great resources to help you offset your carbon footprint and travel as sustainably as possible.
