Description

People & Planet is the largest student network in Britain campaigning for action on world poverty, human rights & the environment. People & Planet Sheffield is Sheffield's branch of the national network.

From awareness raising stalls and petitioning to organising and getting involved in national demos and mass actions, People and Planet members aim to make the world a greener, fairer, more sustainable place.

Our current campaigns and activities include:

  • Making the search engine Ecosia the default search engine on all University of Sheffield computers. Ecosia uses the funds it gains from ad revenue to fund reforestation projects all over the world, creating positive environmental and social change. This campaign is brand new for 2018/19 so we need passionate campaigners, activists, and other wonderful people to get the campaign up and running.
  • Running a monthly(ish) 'Swap-Shop', where students can swap unwanted clothes, books, DVDS, accesories for other students' unwanted gems! We aim to continue the Swap Shops throughout the year so keep up to date with events through the Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/swapshopsheffield/
  • Getting involed with other ethical and environmental groups and events in Sheffield and the UK! These include Sheffield Climate Alliance, Frack Free South Yorkshire, Reclaim The Power amongst others.
  • We will also be starting a new campaign in October after our EGM. More info on this will be forthcoming but if you have any campaign ideas or would like to become a Campaign Coordinator, please get in touch!

  •  

We choose each year which campaigns we want to run, depending on what YOU want! All ideas are welcome, all dreams can come true!

It's really easy to get involved, whether you're an experienced campaigner or never done any campaigning in your life, and there's something for everyone! We're a super friendly, relaxed and open group and love having new faces and new energy so please join us at our weekly meetings, every Tuesday at 6 - 7pm in the Activities Zone of the SU :)
