(7 p.m., 7 Oct to 7 a.m., 8 Oct 2016) Hong Kong No Air Con Night 2016

PolyU has pledged to support Hong Kong No Air Con Night 2016

PolyU has pledged to support the Hong Kong No Air Con Night launched by Green Sense from 7 p.m., 7 October to 7 a.m., 8 October 2016 to bring out the importance in reducing greenhouse gases and saving energy through the wise use of air conditioning.

 

Why are we doing this?

Since 2010, PolyU has been a trustful partner to this meaningful event and we believe we have the right cause.  It is not difficult to understand air con cooling translates into great electricity consumption and brings impacts to our Earth. Yet we must not forget that there are good and clever practices to stay cool and use energy more wisely. Together we can reduce our reliance on air conditioning and help to conserve energy.

 

How can you help?

We would like to take this opportunity to seek your support in the following respects for the campaign. Please help to:

  • Switch off the air conditioners for 12 hours from 7 p.m., 7 October to 7 a.m., 8 October at your home or student hostel and turn off unnecessary ones in your office;
  • Share the message with your friends, colleagues and family; and
  • Pledge to support the event by filling in the Green Sense’s online pledge form at https://goo.gl/forms/RCE8pGxOb57csMUH3.
