Energy Week 2008
Energy Saving Week is an Energy Saving Trust campaign which is taking place from the 20th - 26th October 2008. We will therefore be running a similar Energy Saving Week here at the University of Exeter in support of the national event. The week will provide an overview of the issues relating to energy efficiency, the positive action that individuals can take to save energy as well as details of energy related research activities at the University.
For the full programme of events please see the Exeter Events tab above,
The following are some of the key events happening during the week:
Hard Rain Exhibition
Climate change, poverty, habitat loss, human rights… Hard Rain explores the issues that are defining the 21st century. It is a powerful and thought provoking outdoor photographic exhibition created by Mark Edwards that has toured the globe and has been commented on by numerous world leaders. The exhibition will be on display every day outside the library on the Streatham Campus.

Hard Rain books will be available from the University Bookshop (Streatham Campus) and the Energy Road Show in Queens on Friday 24th October.
