Global Climate Strike - day of action

On the 29th November 2019, Warwick SU supported the Global Climate Strike by hosting a Climate Emergency briefing and Q&A panel led by University of Warwick academics. This preceded a march and mass sit-in at University house, in protest of the University's 'inaction' in its response to the climate crisis. The day then ended with a screening of 'Heading For Extinction (and what to do about it)' in The Graduate, with a discussion led by an academic from the University.

Water Consumption in Campus Accommodation

University of Warwick students who live in on-campus accommodation consume an average of 193 litres of water per person per day in their rooms. That is 43 litres more than the national average (who also have access to hosepipes, washing machines, dishwashers etc).
