Meetings Weds evenings at 7pm in 06AC03
the People and Planet society, part of a national network of student groups from Universities &
Colleges across the UK People
& Planet Network, a democratic grass root
organisation campaigning on environmental, world poverty and social justice
As a society we primarily focus on running campaigns on a local level,
based around on the University Campus. We are currently running
a Fossil Free campaign to get the University to stop investing and
promoting fossil fuel companies. We are also planning on starting a new
sweatshop free campaign to demand the University purchases products such as clothes
and electronics from suppliers that don't use sweatshops and respect their
workers human rights.
In addition, the people and planet network also holds both regional and national
events with workshops, talks and a chance to meet other student from
around the UK.
We're always keen to get to get new members, there's no bad time for you to join and we welcome people of all ages and backgrounds. You don't have to be a hard core activist! If you care about climate change or social justice we're very happy to have you as member. You don't have to be an expert either, we are happy to get any of our new members up to speed on the issues we campaign on.
