Reduce the Juice – Saving Energy in Halls of Residence
May 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
At the University of London, in England, we have launched a behaviour change programme aimed at students living on campus in the University’s halls of residence. The aim of the programme is twofold, 1. to save energy and reduce carbon emissions. 2. to ensure that students living in our halls leave knowing how they can take simple steps to live more sustainable lifestyles.
Reduce the Juice was a big success in its first year, we now have five universities taking part in an expanded pilot project all in competition with each other to save energy, water and recycle more. We are now developing the programme so that it can be run remotely, with plans for an international competition starting for the 2017-18 academic year.
The webinar will look at the successes, the lessons learned and how you can use our ideas to reduce energy consumption at your university’s halls of residence as well.
