Golden Light Switch

In our quest to save energy, we’ve come up with a (very serious) way to recognize groups around UHN that have done their part to GIVE A FLICK. This coveted award is the GOLDEN LIGHT SWITCH. Behold it in all its beauty….

Why do we care so much? Turning off lights and cutting back on excess electricity consumption reduces air pollution and prevents climate change. The OMA says air pollution in Ontario leads to 17,000 hospital admissions and 60,000 emergency room visits each year. So next time you’re last out of a room, turn off the lights to protect the environment AND save lives.

Who’s done what it takes to get this most esteemed award, and the 5 minutes of hi-fiving that goes with it?!
