What We Do
People & Planet is the largest student network in Britain campaigning for action on world poverty, human rights & the environmental crisis. People & Planet Bath is The University of Bath's branch of the national network. In 2018/19 we organised a ‘Sustainable Futures Careers Evening’ , a talk series ‘Conversations on Climate Change’ featuring a lecture on Climate Refugees and raised awareness of the Environmental Breakdown, along with other actions.
At our weekly meetings in 2019/20 we are aiming to do more: campaigning for a Carbon Neutral Campus by 2030, embedding sustainability within courses at the university, empowering students to take action on the Climate Breakdown and providing them with the knowledge to reduce their ecological footprint.
Some of Our Members Attended Extinction Rebillion London
