Support Campaigns for Climate Action

Who's making it happen

Description

There are many students who want to get involved with climate action but who may not know where to start,

It is part of the job of the VP of Charities and Communities to connect students with campaigns, and empower these campaigns with research and resources on any area of climate action across the university. This year, Kaya is bringing these campaigns together under a central Climate Action Plan to incentivize and track collective action.

To get involved, join the Sustainability Guild started by Oxford College staff and Home Bursars, or find a campaign or green impact effort in your college or department email vpcandc@oxfordsu.ox.ac.uk.
