JUMP

Join our JUMP scheme –a competitive sustainability and well-being scheme with great rewards!

Since October 2014, the University has been running a fun sustainability and well-being scheme which enables all students and staff to earn points for “good behaviour”! 

Called JUMP, the scheme awards points to individuals which are then totalled to produce department scores.  The scheme has been specifically developed for the University in partnership with a company called Green Rewards.

The scheme operates from a webpage which all students and staff can access from any computer, or you can download the app and access all the information from your phone.  It’s really easy to activate your account and start earning points for simple activities such as reporting on your recycling activities, using reusable cups and energy saving. 

You can also register for different activities such as walking, cycling, using the intercampus buses, or car sharing and participation in University or SU sustainability or well-being events, such as Green Campus Group meetings. 

As the ethos behind the scheme is to reward teams for their combined efforts, you can also gain points for encouraging someone else to join in the fun by registering for the scheme; this could be a student in your department or may be a staff member. 

Remember the more people you have participating in your department, the greater chance you have of claiming that top prize!  

Find out more and start earning points.

 

 

The great thing about this scheme is that you can check your individual points instantly as they are displayed on the web page and you can also check how well you team is doing from the leader board. 

 

 

At the end of the annual competition an awards ceremony is held to celebrate team and individual achievements.  For the past five years this has been organised by our second year Event Management students.  Take a look at the JUMP Awards 2020 video produced for this year’s event.
