How to Get Involved

In Oxford, there are tons of ways to get involved in sustainability work and we hope this guide can help you. If you have any questions, or still aren’t sure where’s best to get involved, reach out to your Environment Rep at your college, or email our VP for Charities and Community at vpcc@oxfordsu.ox.ac.uk 

Societies and Campaigns 

Oxford Climate Justice Campaign  

Oxford Climate Justice Campaign (OCJC) is a student-led campaign, seeking to get the University to cut it’s ties with the fossil fuel industry. The group is non-hierarchical and anyone is welcome to join their meetings and get involved. To find out more about the campaign and when their meetings are, check out their social medias.

Oxford Climate Society  

Oxford Climate Society (OCS) connects people interested in climate change, seeking to inspire and educate the next generation of climate leaders, take action towards ambitious emission reductions in Oxford, and provide platforms for academic, artistic and social engagement with climate change.  

Decarbonise Oxford is a campaign led by OCS aiming to get all of the University’s colleges and permanent halls to adopt carbon reduction and sustainability targets at least as ambitious as the University’s aim of net zero carbon and biodiversity net gain by 2035. This campaign will support students and staff in trying to get colleges to make these commitments, and will be hosting a number of events and meetings to do this. To find out more, check out OCS’ social media, and keep an eye on our SU events page as we’ll also be listing Decarbonise Oxford sessions there.

College Environment & Ethics Officers  

Each college common room has an Environment and Ethics Officer (although it may be called a slightly different name), and you should be able to find out who they are here (if you’re logged in). One way you can get involved in sustainability work is to reach out to them and find out what’s happening on a college level. You could also run for this role in your common room elections. All the Environment and Ethics Officers are invited to Rep Comms, a meeting arranged by us at the Student Union where they can get together to discuss issues, find solutions, and get support from the SU.
