Recently, the Hunan Provincial Department of Water Resources and the Education Department of Hunan Province jointly issued a document to announce the list of the first batch of water-saving colleges and universities in Hunan Province. HNMMC was awarded and became one of the first universities in Hunan Province to receive this honor.
In recent years, the college’s Party committee administration has attached great importance to the conservation and utilization of resources, earnestly implemented the development concepts of innovation, coordination, greenness, openness, and sharing, and integrated the concept of sustainable development into the whole process of schooling. In 2020, the college actively promoted the construction of water-saving college, establishing a leading group for the college's water-saving work, formulating work programs, improving the water-saving management work system, establishing a sound water-saving management work mechanism, and enhancing the level of refined management. During the process, the college invested nearly 300,000 yuan to replace water-saving facilities and strengthen the maintenance of the pipe network to prevent leakage. A series of water-saving education activities were carried out, such as theme signature events, topic sessions, and topic training. We made water-saving publicity boards, printed and distributed water-saving proposals and publicity posters, compiled and gave out water-saving brochures, put up water-saving publicity stickers in obvious place beside the water-using appliances, which have created a water-loving, water-saving and water-cleaning atmosphere in the campus. Teachers and students were well educated and guided to develop good behaviors and lifestyles to improve water efficiency.
The award of the honorary title of "Water-saving Colleges and Universities" in the province is an affirmation of our college’s achievements in daily water management, popularization of water-saving appliances, and water-saving technological reform. The college will continue to meet the requirements of water and power saving indicators by intensifying refined management to make a further progress in water and energy saving work and make a positive contribution to promote the energy-saving work of public buildings and the construction of energy-saving campus in the college.
