Many people contributed to the success of the 2017 Big Holiday Switch Off, and we're grateful to everyone who took part!


Green Impact teams

Various groups across campus used the Big Holiday Switch Off as a way to engage staff and students in their Green Impact programme. From chocolate drops and new 'switch off' stickers (ENV), to puns galore (NBS) and reminders to shut down over the holidays, lots of actions were achieved.

Special thanks to UEA's BMS team and Emily Lewis, our Year in Industry student: our top team behind the scenes! (See image, right)

The BMS team worked hard to make sure that heating could be run efficiently, and that challenges were identified ahead of time. Emily did a great job with the promotion, campaign planning and the data analysis – what did you think about the posters this year?
