UEA installs new solar bench on campus

The University of East Anglia has installed a new ‘Solar Bench’ on campus. This comes from the Sustainable Ways Vision, a campaign incorporated by the Estates and Facilities Division at UEA. The new solar bench has features such as 4 USB power ports, WiFi and LED illumination. Sustainable Ways Vision aims to put out data surrounding global sustainability out into the public domain and promote awareness of sustainable policies being enacted by the University. The construction of the bench by Estates comes in a summer which saw campus undergo large structural repairs to Arts 1 and 2 and the Sciences along with the walkway running parallel to the Library and Lecture Theatres. Other university institutions have also committed to sustainability with Unio and Ziggy’s cafe implementing 20p surcharge for the use of plastic cups for coffee. The solar bench is located in the seating area outside Student Support Services.
