STUDENTS left the classrooms behind to learn the environmentally-friendly way.
A group of students from Huddersfield New College, Salendine Nook, and Huddersfield’s Greenhead College learned more about environmentally and ethically aware businesses.
All of the students spent two days brushing up on vital business skills such as marketing, product design and ethics.
Then they pitched green business ideas.
As part of the project, they visited two local businesses – the Green Building Company at Bolster Moor and the Green Valley Grocers in Slaithwaite, both highly successful in green technology and locally owned cooperatives.
The competition was organised by the Marsden and Slaithwaite Renaissance Team and was sponsored by Vivid Resourcing and Huddersfield University Business School.
The Marsden and Slaithwaite Renaissance group was set up to develop ideas as part of the Renaissance Market Towns initiative, which aims to support the development of sustainable small towns in Yorkshire and the Humber.
