People's lives around the world - primarily in the global south - are being destroyed by climate change. If we do nothing this will only get worse. Join us on the political, social and moral fight against climate breakdown.

As an extension to last years’ success Fossil Free campaign when the University committed to divest from fossil fuels, we are now calling on the University to:

  1. Declare a climate emergency
  2. Set a carbon neutral target of 2030
  3. Set up cross-university groups involving staff and students to discuss how the University must act on climate change

We want the University to focus on reducing its carbon footprint and to educate students about the social and ecological impacts of climate change

We have worked with the University to establish six new sustainability sub-groups each with a Guild representative and an academic Chair. Each sub group will set meaningful and challenging programmes of work across six areas of university activity: climate; biodiversity; culture and communication; responsible consumption and production; travel and transport; and the built environment.

This is a great start, but there’s much more to do. We believe that the destructive effects of climate change affect people and planet in varying degrees. Structural issues like colonialism, capitalism, patriarchy and individualism mean that climate change affects some parts of the world more than others.

We will be putting on screenings, panels and workshops that will inform and address some of these problems.
