How to take part in the Big Easter Switch Off

egg

Use these resources to guide you through the switch off in your department, lab or residence, and to promote your involvement to increase the impact of the campaign.

How to get started

  • Put up Big Easter Switch Off posters around your department (available below).
  • Send out an email to everyone in your department asking them to Pledge to Switch-Off. You could do this yourself or ask your Departmental Administrator to do it for you.
  • Add our Big Easter Switch Off logo to your email footer. See below for the image. 
  • Tweet and post updates about the Big Easter Switch Off. Why not include the shareable image below?
  • Identify some volunteers in your department will be responsible for encouraging people to Switch-off – your Green Impact team is probably a good start.  Ask them if they can tweet and put the logo in their email footer too.
  • On the day that UCL closes for Easter – use your volunteers and the checklists to ensure everything’s off.
