'Get Your Knit On’ to Show Your Support for a Greener Campus and Unlock Funds for Northwest STOP!
Simple Step for a Smaller Footprint
IT Sligo Green Campus, in partnership with our Estates team and IT Sligo Students’ Union, wants to raise awareness of the environmental impact of the energy we all use.
On Wednesday 8th December IT Sligo will turn down heating across campus by 10C and we are asking you to ‘get your knit on’ to show your support
Our campaign #getyourkniton wants to bring our community together to support a change to a greener, more sustainable campus.
Jumper Pics Unlock Funds for Northwest STOP
Send us your jumper photo to show your support for a greener campus! But there is more…
For every jumper picture we receive, IT Sligo and IT Sligo Student’s Union will donate, on your behalf, to Northwest STOP, a local suicide prevention charity.
Take a photo or short video of yourself in your favourite knit, or Christmas jumper!
Share it to Twitter or Instagram tagging @ITSGreenCampus and @ITSligoSU, or
