Institutional Blackout: engaging staff and students in saving energy 

Topics Covered: In April 2012, University of Southampton completed the first ever campus-wide energy audit, with 255 students and staff auditing and switching off all unnecessary office equipment. The aims were to deliver carbon savings from behaviour interventions, raise awareness, and empower students and staff in sustainability actions. Learn how this pioneering collaborative staff-student initiative was developed and can be implemented in your institution to engage staff and students in carbon saving.
