Switch off and light up campus! Every time you turn off the kitchen light, unplug your charger or have a shorter shower you are directly supporting sustainability investments on campus. Plus your hall will also have the chance to win £500 to create a community project for your hall.
Polwarth for the win! Last year Polwarth stole the show with an incredible 20% reduction in electricity use over both semesters and won £1,000. The funds went to convert two old, disused porter's offices into a new social and study space. How would you use the community fund?
Halls involved: ASH & Pendreich Way, Donnelly, Fraser, Polwarth, Willow Court, Beech Court, Muirhead, Juniper Court and Alexander Court
How can we win?
The University, in partnership with us here at the Union, will be monitoring energy usage across the halls mentioned above. The halls who make the biggest reduction in usage per person will win! This means there is an equal chance of winning for every hall, no matter how big or small the hall is.
We will be monitoring the leader board and posting it here so make sure you keep updated and get switching off those spare plugs, towel drying your hair or turning off your tv!
