Being 'eco-friendly' may sometimes seem complicated, time-consuming or expensive, but doing this action is outrageously simple: turn off the lights!
During the academic year, we run three main Switch off campaigns to encourage everyone to turn off the lights and equipment.
Here are some key Switch off dates:
Christmas Switch off takes place 14 to 18 December 2020
Easter Switch off takes place 29 to 31 March 2021
Christmas and Easter Switch offs
Last year, students and staff helped to save over 360,000 kWh of energy by switching off. That's a reduction of 40% on London Met’s usual energy use and would be enough to cook over 115,000 Vegan Wellingtons and feed over 690,000 people!
This year we want to save even more!
We have created resources advertising the London Met Christmas and Easter Switch offs to help you save as much energy as possible and encourage everyone to use these.
If you required digital poster, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send it to you!
Projector Switch off
The Projector Switch off campaign is an all-year campaign for staff and students to continue to reduce the amount of energy consumed and reach higher goals within the sustainability.
The Sustainability Team in conjunction with Information and Technology Services has created a video to promote and explain the importance of saving energy for the environment and for the economics of the University. This video is specifically aimed at reducing energy consumption by reminding staff and students to turn off display projectors after use.
