The participant in our nation’s capital is DCU. Situated in the North of the city, the University has been ecologically conscious from its foundation, and students there aim to save more energy than the other participants combined. Big talk!
DCU is a modern campus and should do well in energy saving. Students and the University are keen to save energy and save the planet. They’ll benefit from a host of advice and information from Student SwitchOff on keeping those bills and CO2 emissions down.
Throughout the year we’ll run competitions around the theme of energy saving and sustainability. Students at DCU stand to win great prizes, from gig tickets, free lunches, study swag and ice cream (which is a much more fun way to cool down than aircon). All students will have to do is cut their energy wastage and show others (through quizzes and photo competitions) how to do the same.
Whether or not you’re in one of the halls above, if you care about doing your bit to reduce waste, sign up for more information at http://usi.ie/saves/
