Welcome to Turn USW Green!


Turn USW Green is all about taking action to reduce our impact on the environment, both on an individual and university-wide level. You've made a great first step by signing up for the programme and the steps below will help you get the most out of it.

2. Take part in activities


You can take part in a whole range of activities to earn Green Points for yourself and your team. We've grouped these activities into themes, all of which you can get involved in at any time.

Check out each of the activities to see what you have to do - for some you'll need to submit some information or a photo whilst for others you'll be sent a weekly reminder to let us know what you've done. We've included an impact and effort rating so you've got a rough idea of which activities will have the biggest effect on your carbon footprint.


3. Check the leader board

The leader board on the homepage shows how you're performing compared to your colleagues and classmates and how your team is doing compared to others at USW.



4. Win prizes


As part of the programme you'll get the opportunity to win 1 of 4 x £20 vouchers each month, with choices including National Book Tokens, M&S, National Garden Gift Vouchers, Boobalou, and cinema vouchers. Each term we'll also be awarding £200 to the top team to donate to one of our charity partners.

Our top individuals are based on who has earned the most points during that month. Don't worry if you've only just joined or haven't taken part in a while - as soon as you get stuck in, you're in with a chance to win!


5. Encourage your colleagues and classmates to get involved


You can encourage your colleagues and classmates to get involved (and earn Green Points for yourself) using our refer a friend tool - all you need is your friend's email address to send them an invite.

Please note: only people inside your organisation can get involved.
