Our “Switch-Off” initiative, which is normally run over bank-holiday weekends is being expanded to become a “Switch-Off Week” with the aim of reducing electricity usage and harmful emissions throughout the Green Week and to raise awareness of the important role individuals play in energy conservation.

The environmental impact of single-use items is well-publicised, this is what we have done in UCD
