Spring is here and AUT has some events coming up later in September where you can enjoy being outside and learn or try something new. In particular, it is Green Campus day on the Tuesday 22 September and AUT is hosting the following events:

Biodiversity walk

Come along to a biodiversity walk led by Claire Ellis on Tuesday 22 September, 12pm to 1pm. Claire – an AUT graduate – will walk you through the South Campus where you’ll learn about the range of native trees and plants on campus and how they support biodiversity. This workshop is free for all AUT staff and students. The walk will begin from outside the MA Library entrance. Numbers are restricted, so please email to register.

Try an e bike

Try an e bike at the City Campus on Tuesday 22 September. Stop by any time between 12pm and 2pm to the area outside WA and WH buildings. E bike and helmet provided.

Bike maintenance

Free bike maintenance workshops are offered to staff and students to learn basic bike maintenance skills about keeping your bike in good condition and refresh knowledge on how to fix a puncture.  Bring your bike or drop in and ask the bike mechanic questions. A limited number of backpack covers, emergency bike lights and puncture repair kits will be available for those who drop in. The bike maintenance workshops will be at the City Campus in Hikuwai Plaza on:
