What We Do
As the only environmental society on Campus, at People and Planet we are committed to acting against the biggest threat to our future: Climate Change.
If you want to leave a positive impact on the world - not only this year but also during the rest of your life - this is the society for you. Together we will identify and raise awareness on the current challenges that we face, take action on them, and ultimately induce positive change. This may be change in the students here, change at university level, or even nationally and internationally by cooperating with other People and Planet societies across the country.
The past year has been a great one for the society. We have run a hugely succesful Divestment campaign - which we won at the end of last academic year (2018), putting pressure on the University to remove their investments in the Fossil Fuel industry. We have had debates, film screenings, socials and much more. To top it all off we were awarded Ethical and Poltical Society of the year for 2017! We can't wait to continue next year with both new and returning members. We'll be starting the follow on campaign from divestment called Divest Barclays and continuing with Sweatshop Free.

This year we plan to go full on with our 2 campaigns, with lots of socials, training sessions, some direct action, film screenings, and anything else you would like to do!
We are at a critical point in our history where the actions and initiatives of people like you will determine the future of our people and our planet. That is why we encourage you to join us on this journey and be part of the people that changed the world for the better.
Here at People and Planet we welcome you all, regardless of your background, motives and beliefs. For more information and to keep updated on what we do you please follow our Facebook page.
