Wellbeing Week at the Bodleian Libraries: Mon 20 to Fri 24 February

Take a break from your studies and try something completely different!

This week the Bodleian Libraries are running a wide range of activities for students to support wellbeing and help to manage stress. As part of the University’s Green Action Week (20–24 February), all of the sessions have an environmentally-friendly theme. Go on a wellbeing walk, sing outside with a group, create some blackout poetry, join a make-do-and-mend workshop, play board games, take a creative writing session and more.

The sessions are free to attend; some sessions require booking in advance. A full list of sessions (and links to book, where applicable) can be found on the Bodleian Libraries Wellbeing Week webpage.
