Volunteering is a great way to gain work experience, meet new people, and boost the skills on your CV while studying.
Join our c-change ad-hoc volunteers bank
We’re always looking for volunteers to support our c-change work through fun one-off volunteering opportunities – helping us out with an event or campaign for an hour or two every now and then. If you’re interested in joining our volunteers list, just fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch!
Join your campus Sustainability Action Network
The Sustainability Action Network (SAN) is a university-wide forum for all staff and students, where they can come together to share ideas and bring about change to their local environments through grassroots action. Everyone is welcome to join the network, from any campus.
There is a £250 annual budget to support a SAN at each campus, which can be used to develop the group’s idea and make a positive difference on your campus. Any idea is welcome and the Sustainability Team will work with you to provide help and guidance with any suggested projects if needed.
Currently there is a SAN at the Moulsecoomb campus, called Green Moulsecoomb, who meet every other month in Mithras House. Green Moulsecoomb launched a tea- towel scheme in September 2018 using their annual budget, to reduce paper towel use across the Moulsecoomb campus.
If you would like to set up a network on your campus please contact the Sustainability Team via the c-change email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, who will support you in developing a network at your campus.
