Building our community spirit with #OneWatt


Following the Principal’s blog last week announcing our #OneWatt response to the challenge of Coronavirus, we are continuing to work hard to streamline our communications during this period.

By adopting a unified approach we can come together as one flourishing community, while helping to make our messages really clear.

We have produced #OneWatt Guidance to help explain the themed communications framework, which we are introducing immediately.

Please read the guidance and find out more about our communications approach, the messaging framework and top tips on what you can do to help.  

We are asking our colleagues around the world to join in and use #OneWatt on your own channels. Let’s work together in uniting our communications during the coming months and into the future.

Please feel free to send any ideas or feedback to
