Who are we:
A student led society enabling people who care about reducing their impact on the environment to get together and meet people with similar views.
We also encourage others to live more sustainably. Because we are in a climate emergency.

We are so fortunate to be at such a beautiful University. However, it is far from perfect in terms of sustainability, just like all over the world. As a society, we do our very best to suggest and implement changes in the University; to the staff & students; to wider Nottingham; and further afield. All it takes is to rethink our actions and make small changes in our lifestyle, in order to help the ever-growing climate crisis and help our suffering world recover.
Our beautiful world will not look like this for much longer if we do not take serious action. In 25/50/75 years time: if our world has become depleted, without any nature & animals, and frequent catastrophic events, such as droughts and flooding, which will affect all of us – will we really be able to look ourselves in the eye and say that we did everything we could to save it when we knew it was in perilous danger? Therefore we must take action now.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
