Get turned on to Energy Awareness Day

In accordance with McGill's environmental policy, the campaign will serve to promote environmental awareness and publicize initiatives that have already been undertaken by the University to curtail the over-consumption of energy on campus. January has been selected for the campaign as the cold weather and the resumption of the academic year have traditionally made it the month with the highest energy consumption.
