Recommendations

Podcasts, books, music and boxsets have been this year's way to unwind. Check out these recommendations by students, for students, on the latest live streams, hot-topics and reviews.

This month our focus is the Environment. The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature, yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message - to care for ourselves we must care for nature. Don't forget to sign our pledge to make City of Glasgow College greener! 

This week the recommendations are from the Down to Earth Society.
