Hugo has landed

Hugo, the History Department’s new Mascot to promote Green Impact has arrived. He’s chilling above every light switch to remind you that every time you leave a room without turning the light off a polar bear dies…. just joking…. BUT Polar Bears International says that Scientists predict that as the Arctic continues to warm, two-thirds of the world’s polar bears could disappear within this century. So don’t forget to do the little things like turn the light off when you leave the room, recycle and turn the radiator off when you open a window.

Go Green Week!

So thglobal-303172is week is Go Green Week! We’ve already had everything from a Post-code coffee morning, Make a green Chinese New Year’s resolution, the Big bike sale and Dr. Bike to Green Games and an SU Swap Shop. So far this week has been pretty amazing!

The History Department is even getting involved in Go Green Week! We’re hosting a Stationary Amnesty where all of the staff have to return the stationary they’ve borrowed to stop the department from getting more which they don’t need. We’re also getting some thermometers for their offices to ensure that we’re keeping the radiators down.

Still to come this week is a Transport Stall, Waste Electrical items Amnestry, Lunch time bike ride, Film showing of Cowspiracy, Meat-free Friday, and Prizes for cyclists!

Tweet the History Department about what you’ve been getting up to in Go Green Week, even if it’s something as simple as putting your recycling out for collection or walking to campus!
