Do you ever feel powerless?
Especially when confronted by problems the size of climate breakdown, plastic pollution and wildlife decimation? Us too – but getting involved in our work and campaigns is a great way to begin to take on these planetary emergencies.
There are loads of ways in which you can get involved! From something as simple as attending a meeting or supporting a (Re)Love Our Stuff sale, to something as big as leading a campaign or running an event, your involvement is invaluable to our work, and any time or energy you can give is greatly appreciated.
Students and teachers
The best way to get involved is to come to one of our meetings – every Friday lunchtime at 1pm in Room 31. There, you can find out how you can get involved, or suggest your ideas for new projects and campaigns. Alternatively, if you know you want to be involved with a specific branch of Environmental Society, such as Eco-Warriors
or the Biology Garden
, then you can get stuck in straight away with those.
Parents, governors and members of the wider school community
Support from the wider school community is critical to our success, and any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Here are some ideas.
- Could you be a representative on our committee, bringing in new perspectives, supporting core projects and suggesting your ideas?
- Could your skills in advertising help us reach more people, more effectively, with our campaigns?
- Could your skills in teamwork and leadership help us be a more successful group?
- Does your organisation specialise in green technology or youth engagement?
- Could your business sponsor an event, a raffle or a fundraiser?
- Could you come to speak at an event, or run a workshop?
- Would your charity/NGO be interested in partnering with us on a campaign, or piloting a schools’ programme?
- Could your gardening skills help develop our school grounds?
- Could your knowledge of investment and finance enable us to run a community energy project, such as getting solar panels for the school?
The more people on board, the further and faster we can make change.
We can’t wait for you to join us!
