Switch offStudents from Penmaen and Owain are the winners of this year’s Student Switch Off competition!

The competition runs every year between residences at the University. The halls that save the most energy and engage in termly competitions win a prize. Students at Penmaen will receive a voucher to spend on campus, and Owain winners will receive cupcakes!

Student Switch Off is a campaign that aims to make university living more sustainable through taking climate action in university accommodation. It encourages students to take actions like switching off lights and appliances when not in use, putting lids on pans when cooking and not overfilling kettles.

This has resulted in energy usage across all the halls dropping by an average of 15% compared to previous years.

Read the Swansea Univeristy Switch off report for more information.

Well done to all those involved!

The nation will come together to count their plastic waste for one week in May and the new evidence will be crucial to convince the government, big brands and supermarkets to finally take ambitious action on plastic packaging.  (more…)
