The easiest way to get involved in Student Switch Off is to save energy, save water & recycle wherever you can, and encourage your flat-mates to do the same. Don’t forget to take our online pledge at the bottom of this page to let us know how you’re planning on taking action this year. If you want to get more involved, we have more opportunities below…

Volunteer with Student Switch Off

You can take action with us to raise awareness on sustainability issues in your hall by becoming a Student Switch Off Champion. On 16th October we will be holding a training session for volunteers – find out more and register here. In this role you will gain transferable skills in:

campaigning, communication, team-work and event planning
