We know you want more opportunities to take action on energy wastage. The nationwide Snap It Off day on Wednesday 4 February is the perfect opportunity to light up social media whilst channelling your inner Nelly Furtado.
Getting rid of unnecessary lighting is a great way of cutting your carbon while saving your union money. But what can your staff and students do about streetlights left on in the day, or empty rooms lit up with no switch in sight?
Snap It Off gives everyone the power to take action. Together, we can make our campuses and communities as energy efficient as possible.
It’s easy to take part. Just take a photo of the light on your phone, upload it to our app on Facebook or through our website, add details on when and where it was taken, and we’ll get in touch with whoever can switch it off.
Take action on the day
On 4 February, we want to see a day of national action on Snap It Off, with students’ unions across the country helping their students take action on cutting carbon. What’s more, it counts towards your Green Impact accreditation.
Any photos submitted on 4 February could even win £50 of John Lewis vouchers. And there’s more prizes every month.
Have you considered offering a prize of your own to your students? With the money you could save on energy bills, it’ll be a good investment. Advertise Snap It Off through your email newsletters and social media, and give your students the opportunity to cut carbon every day.
Driving energy efficiency
In a year with a general election and crucial UN talks on climate change, we want to be sending a clear signal that a low-carbon, energy efficient UK is exactly what students want. Snap It Off is the easiest way to take action.
Together, we can make a huge impact on unnecessary lighting across the UK.
Tell your students about Snap it Off, and share it your own photos on Wednesday 4 February.
