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 2019/20 we organised a Sustainable Careers Evening, held a climate strike on campus, got the University to declare a climate emergency, and got food waste bins installed around campus.
Campaigning for Carbon Neutral Campus by 2030
At our weekly (online) meetings in 2020/21 we are aiming to: embed sustainability within courses at the university as part of the University's Climate Action Framework; empower students to take action on the Climate Breakdown; provide them with the knowledge to reduce their ecological footprint; get Ecosia installed on University computers; combat institutional racism; fight fast fashion with swap shops and Dopple.
Whether you are just interested in learning more about climate change, or are already motivated to help the transition to a more sustainable and equitable future, People & Planet is a great society to join, facilitating you to have a wider positive impact whilst you study. We welcome everyone to get involved with our diverse community and look forward to meeting you soon!
