Registration is now open for this year’s Student Sustainability Summit – an event for activists and officers putting sustainability at the heart of our student movement delivered in partnership with EAUC and People & Planet.
Over the last five years we’ve seen student-led sustainability become absolutely transformational across our movement. But as global leaders prepare to meet in Paris this winter, and our work on divestment gathers more and more momentum, we want to take it even further.
For two days of talks, workshops and networking, the second ever Student Sustainability Summit will help you to make this happen, delivered in partnership with EAUC and People & Planet. We can make sustainability one of our movement’s key social justice issues, and reform our education system to make it a force for social, economic and environmental good.
We’ll be exploring issues like
- Fossil fuel divestment
- Reinvestment in renewables
- Local food and co-operatives
- Health and wellbeing
- Creative activism
- Green jobs and economy
- Beyond Paris – linking the local to the national

We've got keynotes from
- David Buckland, artist, curator, writer, film-maker, and founder of Cape Farewell
- Shakira Martin, NUS vice president for further education.
Over two days of exploring these crucial issues, you'll leave with the skills, connections and inspiration you need to drive real change across your campus and community this year. And you'll be part of a global movement demanding change, as we approach the UN climate talks in Paris this winter.
Read the full agenda and register today and join us in the University of Bristol Students' Union on November 9 and 10 for two days of sustainability and social justice.
