Climate Wall Comes to Cornwall

October 23, 2023

An interactive light projection 鈥淭he Climate Wall鈥 is coming to Cornwall, Penryn Campus, from 27 November – 1 December 2023. The art installation represents a moment of reflection in the lead up to COP28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and will serve as a public record and reminder of how we feel about Climate Change here and now. Its aim is to encourage reflection on climate change issues, sharing responses and practical recommendations for individual and collective action.

The and will be hosted on Penryn campus in collaboration with Falmouth University, 缅北强奸 and the SU. Just as the climate and ecological emergency is a collective issue that we all face, the wall invites all those within our community to participate and share your responses.

Climate messaging provided by university climate scientists, academics and students will be projected onto an external wall via a projector which will be activated when people pass by, making the words ‘dance’ about the wall accompanied by film. You can add your own responses to the messaging on the wall via a QR code and your mobile phone, or in person by locking onto a word and moving it up the wall. There will also be lines of poetry on the wall in different languages, from the Green Futures COP projects. It needs darkness to run so will operate from 4pm – 9pm each evening in the outside space between the Stannary and the SU on Penryn Campus, which is jointly owned by the Universities of Exeter and Falmouth.

To celebrate the Climate Wall coming to Cornwall, staff at Falmouth University and 缅北强奸 have arranged a complimentary collection of displays and activities which encourage visitors to reflect, connect and act on issues affecting climate change. These shall be located in the balcony area of the library from 27 November 鈥 5 January 2024, and includes an exhibition of biodiversity specimens and a 鈥楻eflection Space鈥, where you can talk about your emotional response to the climate emergency, reflect upon what you have seen and place any action you wish to take upon the 鈥楶ledge Tree鈥.

There will also be a screening of a short film titled 鈥楢 Day in the Boots鈥. The film features gardener Alasdair Garnett at 缅北强奸, who tends the grounds and gardens of the Tremough Estate (now known as Penryn Campus) and Falmouth campus. It is a story of how small local changes can have a large impact on our environment and reflects on an individual鈥檚 sense of place and the role you can play within it. An animated timeline about the history of Penryn Campus and digital content showcasing green sustainable societies and activities will also be shown.

In addition to this, guests will be able to add information to the 鈥楢ction Collage鈥, which will become a collaborative visualisation of the individual, community and global action taking place around us. The Action Collage will provide information on student-led and local green societies that visitors can connect with to act on the climate and ecological crisis.

On the day of the Climate Wall鈥檚 arrival (27 Nov), from 5pm – 6:30pm, there shall be a special launch event in the space outside the Stannary and the SU. Martin Siegert, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Cornwall) University of Exeter, will give a brief introduction. The Climate Wall and Launch event is open to all staff, students, and the public to attend, you are encouraged to interact with the wall, have fun and post your own message.

New Photovoltaic System Set to Save 149 Tonnes of Carbon

October 19, 2023

Our new Photovoltaic (PV) system is now fully connected and operational on Penryn Campus. The latest addition of PV panels which completes the system has successfully been installed on the Daphne Du Maurier building (October 2023). These panels are in addition to the PV panels which were installed on the roof of Peter Lanyon and the Sports Centre in July 2023.

In total, we have fitted more than 1700 new panels to the roofs of Daphne Du Maurier, Peter Lanyon and the Sports Centre. These will add to existing panels already installed on campus and save energy and money for future investments and improvements. The new PV system has a total capacity of 775 kW with an estimated 700,000 kWh per year generated.

PV panels, also known as solar electricity panels, capture the sun’s energy and convert it into renewable electricity that we can use across Penryn Campus. Our high-tech PV system, which spans across three buildings, will reduce carbon emissions by 149 tonnes each year. An estimated 拢125,934 annual cost saving is also predicted. Calculations are based on 18p/kWh but savings are likely to be much greater than this whilst the current unit rate continues to rise to around 30p/kWh or more.

So far (July 2023), we have recorded a 55% reduction in our energy emissions (electricity & gas) against our 2005/2006 baseline on Penryn Campus (based on per meter squared). The main projects contributing towards this success include the installation of the PV panels, as well as other sustainable modifications such as LED and electrical upgrades, analytics, and sub-metering upgrades.

These modifications and savings are a testament to the collaborative and ongoing efforts of both the Estates and Sustainability Teams, who continue to find ways to introduce green initiatives, improve efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint.

Civic University Agreement signed for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

October 4, 2023

Falmouth University and the University of Exeter have signed a Civic University Agreement with Cornwall Council, the Council of the Isles of Scilly and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board (ICB).

This civic strategy brings the two universities together with the councils and the ICB to work in collaboration to support the region鈥檚 growth and prosperity.

Through the Agreement, the universities will explore with local partners how their facilities and specialist resources, teaching and skills, and research and knowledge exchange can be leveraged for the benefit of the region鈥檚 businesses and communities.

The agreement identifies four priority areas for action, aligned with the Isles of Scilly鈥檚 Corporate Plan and Together We Can: The Cornwall Plan 2020-50, which was shaped with the input of thousands of Cornwall residents. The priorities are:

  • Green Futures Cornwall and Isles of Scilly: sustainable food, land and seas and a creative carbon zero economy, leaving more nature for future generations.
  • Healthy Futures Cornwall and Isles of Scilly: a shared commitment to create healthy, safe and resilient communities where people live well for longer.
  • Fair Futures Cornwall and Isles of Scilly: Supporting thriving places with decent homes, and strengthening equality, education and entrepreneurship with opportunities for lifelong learning and skills development
  • Creative Futures Cornwall and Isles of Scilly: Celebrating the region鈥檚 cultural heritage and supporting partners鈥 shared goals for a leading rural creative economy and a digital revolution for sustainable living.

Following the signing of the Agreement, Professor Emma Hunt, Vice-Chancellor of Falmouth University said, 鈥淭he two universities are deeply committed to their role as anchor institutions in Cornwall. Both leaders in our different specialisms, working in close collaboration with our local partners, we are looking forward to exploring new ways to combine our strengths, target our activity and to achieve more together for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.鈥

Deputy Vice Chancellor, Cornwall at the University of Exeter, Professor Martin Siegert, said 鈥淏y aligning our shared civic objectives with the Cornwall Plan, we can make a real difference on the issues that matter most to people in Cornwall. From the housing crisis to the climate emergency, in health, education and by harnessing our culture and heritage to drive economic growth, we are pleased to be collaborating with our local partners.鈥

The Agreement commits the universities to an annual programme of community engagement to ensure that the work developed and delivered under the umbrella of the Agreement provides real impact for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly鈥檚 people and communities.

Linda Taylor, Leader of Cornwall Council added, 鈥淐ornwall is very fortunate to have two pioneering and complementary universities delivering world-leading teaching and research in the Duchy. This Agreement is a fantastic framework around which we can meaningfully shape our work together, driving focussed activity through an annually agreed set of projects that have been identified and developed with local people.鈥

Robert Francis, Chairman of the Council of the Isles of Scilly said, 鈥淲e are delighted to be a signatory to this Civic University Agreement. The Isles of Scilly has experience of working with staff and students from both institutions on Knowledge Exchange activity and therefore we recognise the value that more collaboration can provide on strategic areas of priority for us and the community.鈥

John Govett, Chair of NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board, said: 鈥淧roviding the best care as close to home as possible is one of the core priorities for our NHS, so we are delighted to have signed an agreement that includes a shared commitment to create healthy, safe and resilient communities where people live well for longer.

Hedgehogs Return to Campus聽

October 2, 2023

For the past couple years, the Grounds and Sustainability Teams have been working hard to create a safe haven for native wildlife on campus. The results have been exciting to observe, and we are happy to report that we now have some regular hedgehogs that seem to have made themselves at home! 

Both juvenile and adult hedgehogs have been spotted in and around Glasney Student Village, catching bugs under streetlamps and scurrying through hedges. 缅北强奸 Biodiversity Project Officer, Abhishek Dixit, says that it is a positive indication that there may have been active nests on campus over the summer.  

Sadly, elsewhere hedgehog populations have been declining due to shrinking wild spaces and hedgerows, the use of pesticides leading to a reduction of available food, deaths due to road traffic, climate change leading to disturbance in their natural life cycle and food availability and littering of their natural habitat. It is fantastic to see that hedgehogs are making a comeback and are returning to Penryn campus. 

Hedgehogs play a critical role in ecosystems of the UK. Being avid insect eaters, they help control populations of pests and insects that would otherwise severely damage plant life of forests, gardens, and farms.  

Through our biodiversity initiatives, we are working towards maintaining and enhancing a well-connected mosaic of habitats (woods, grassland, wildflower meadows, deadwood piles etc.) for our spiny friends to safely navigate around our Cornwall Campuses. 

Thus far, our hard work has paid off with Penryn Campus receiving both Bronze (2020/21) and Silver (2021/22) level certifications with the Hedgehog Friendly Campus program, which is run by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. Now, with confirmed sightings of hedgehogs, this year we are aiming to go for gold certification!  

At 缅北强奸, we are committed to continue to identify more ways to nurture nature across our beautifully biodiverse campuses, which includes finding creative solutions to remove the potential risks faced by hedgehogs and other wildlife.聽
