'Cool It!' Exhibition 2007

25 Sep 2007

Winning entries from climate change competition on show from 24 September

Selected winning entries from the 2007 'Cool It!' competition will be displayed in the main entrance to the John Rylands University Library (JRULM) between Monday 24 September and Friday 12 October.

This annual competition seeks to raise environmental awareness, stimulate discussion and encourage eco-friendly behaviour by inviting students to produce something creative that has impact.

This year's competition and exhibition was funded by the Alumni Annual Fund and includes exhibits such as the winning entry, a 'shopping bag' by Grace Payne, which was made entirely from entwined used plastic shopping bags.

Prizes included 700 worth of organic, air-miles-free shopping, mountain bikes, outdoor clothing vouchers and others such as Rough Guides to Ethical living.

Please come and have a look and, if you're a student, be inspired to enter the 2007-2008 competition which will be launched later in the term.
