Climate Action Bristol: students could help your organisation become more sustainable

Share

The University of Bristol is launching Climate Action Bristol, an initiative which will match student volunteers with organisations that want to improve their sustainability. In the blog post below, Martin Wiles, Head of Sustainability at the University of Bristol, gives an overview of the programme and how organisations can get involved.

The University of Bristol is looking for four organisations, keen to improve their sustainability.

We have enthusiastic and dedicated student volunteers who are keen to take practical action. We want to support them to use their energy and commitment to make a community contribution, developing useful skills and experience along the way.

Climate Action Bristol pairs teams of student volunteers with local organisations. They will use a bespoke online planning tool to develop and implement a climate action plan. These plans will help organisations identify areas in which they can meaningfully and relevantly contribute to meeting climate emergency targets by reducing their own impact.

In taking part, businesses will also be contributing towards building a sustainable workforce fit for the changing landscape of society by giving students real world experience and skill building opportunities to enhance their learning.

We are currently looking for local businesses to take part in this innovative scheme, which we hope could be replicated nationally, linking students and the local economy to take positive climate action building sustainable cities across the UK.

The scheme is set to run from October to the end of March, creating plans in the next few months and delivering actions after Christmas.
