Medical news service Audiomedica have just released a 10:10-themed edition of their regular podcast, featuring 10:10 health coordinator Tim Nicholson.
At this point you're probably wondering a) who this Sandra person is and b) why the counter on the website seems to be stuck on 85,000 or so. Bear with me – this gets a bit strange.
Take Penryn College down in Cornwall, for example. By combining a student-led switch off campaign with improved lighting, heating and IT, the've managed to cut their energy usage by 16% this year. Run the numbers and this gives you a yearly cost saving of more than £50,000. Simple but effective.
What do you do when the low-hanging environmental fruit has already been picked and you’re still hunting for more reductions? Chris Oswick, Facilities Director at Colliers International faced exactly this dilemma:
There’s lots to be said about climate change. But more importantly, there’s lots to be done.
It could be a line from a 10:10 press release, couldn't it? In fact, it's the philosophy behind conservation charity BTCV's carbon army – a practical, hands-on response to the challenge of reducing emissions.
I was really glad to see these stories focus on the concrete actions people and organisation have taken to reduce their emissions. Signing up is great, but 10:10 is ultimately about doing, and the imagination and ambition 10:10ers have shown in making their carbon cuts is really inspiring.
After months of campaigning and lobbying MPs, we can finally confirm that there will be a bill in Parliament backing Lighter Later – our campaign to advance the clocks by one hour for lighter evenings.
Castle Point MP Rebecca Harris' bill would force the government to implement the time change if a full review of the evidence confirms the benefits.
