Student Switch Off update

Student Switch Off logo

We’ve had a great start to our Student Switch Off campaign.  Around 9% of the residents of Student Village have pledged support to the campaign.  Overall we’ve seen a meaningful reduction in electricity use across the courts, but some have been trying harder than others

There’s been a great response to the photo competitions and we’ve even had one our students’ pictures entered into a national competition – take a look:

Vegucated – film screening

Wednesday 23rd January – 7pm, Coop Lecture Theatre 

Vegucated is a feature-length documentary that follows three meat- and cheese

Vegucated-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time, Ellen, the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking, and Tesla, the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the fate of the world may fall on their plates. Lured with true tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture and soon start to wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before.
