Leiden University taking part in Warm Sweater Day
Everyone can contribute to a better climate. One thing you can do is to turn the heating down in your room and wear a warmer sweater! Leiden University is taking part in the Warm Sweater Day again this year. On 2 February the heating will be turned down to 16 degrees in as many University buildings as possible.
In past years Green Keys Leiden, the student organisation for sustainability has been active in promoting National Warm Sweater Day, and the University will be taking part again this year. The main aim of the day is to make students, lecturers and staff at the University aware of how they can save energy. One easy way is to turn the heating down, which really benefits the environment.
So, don't forget to dig your warmest sweater out of the wardrobe on 2 February! You can contribute to reducing CO2 emissions in other ways too, and help the environment at the same time. And to help you get through the day on 2 February, you can get a free hot chocolate between 11 am and 2 pm at the Van Steenis, Gorlaeus, KOG, Wijnhaven, Pieter de la Court and Lipsius building.
Most buildings at Leiden University will be joining in Warm Sweater Day on 2 February and will switch the heating down to 16 degrees. If the temperature in your room or office isn't regulated centrally, you can turn the radiators down manually. As an encouragement, hot chocolate will be handed out at different places within the University. Keep up with the latest news via the Green Keys Facebook page.
