Southend Green Day – Tuesday 25 April

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 7:25 am

It’s easy being green

The University’s Sustainability team will be in Southend on Tuesday 25 April promoting all that is good about being green.

From 11 am till 2 pm in the reception of The Forum they will be joined by a team from Southend Borough Council promoting sustainable travel. Then, from 2 pm until 5 pm,   Southend’s waste services contractor, Veolia, will be on hand to encourage people to recycle at home.

In the Gateway building, Southend based bike company, Comfy Saddle, will be giving advice about cycling and bike maintenance and the Sustainability team has some sturdy bike locks to give away in a competition.

More details will be confirmed nearer the time.

Looking to earn Green Impact points, reduce waste and free up some space?

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — tmarcu @ 6:45 am

How many of you have a handful of pens, pencils, several highlighters or the odd unused ruler in your office draw or on your desk?

Hundreds of paperclips or staples taking over your pen tidy?

Is your stash of envelopes gathering dust?

Do you have a number of plastic pockets storing nothing but other plastic pockets?

Looking to spring clean your desk?

Staff in The Forum are aiming for the Silver award for the Green Impact Programme this year.  To help us towards this we’re holding a Stationery Amnesty.  Any returned stationery is going back into stock to be reused by someone else who does need it at a later point.   This will help us to reduce waste, save money, and frees up space in our immediate work areas.  We’re all checking our desks/office areas for any unused or surplus stationery and returning it to our stationery cupboard.

Why not consider holding one in your own department?

If your amnesty identifies that you have stationery stock that your department is unlikely to use in the future, why not let other departments in Southend know, in case they can use it or offer it to other departments across the University on smallads.

Professor Kruschwitz PIL – Monday 8 May 2017

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — tmarcu @ 3:45 am

Monday 8 May Colchester Campus

Is there more to search than web search?

Professor Udo Kruschwitz, School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering

When talking about search, everybody thinks of Google. However, the search engine of your choice might turn out to be of little help when trying to find information on a website or identifying the right document within an enterprise search environment. Why is that? Professor Udo Kruschwitz will discuss some of the difficulties we all encounter with our online searches and outline ways to address them.

Transport can be arranged if there’s interest from staff/students in Southend attending.
