Officer sustainability bootcamp

OVERVIEW

The first-ever SOS-UK Sustainability Bootcamp is designed especially for elected officers to kick-off the new academic year prepared with the knowledge, skills, and network to hit the ground running. This two-day training is designed for new and returning part-time sustainability or environment and ethics officers as well as full-time officers with a remit or interest in sustainability.

  • Develop campaigning and project management skills;
  • Deepen their understanding of sustainability and social justice, including understanding the social, environmental, and economic dimensions of sustainability;
  • Discuss practical actions that officers can take at their own institutions, including declaring a climate emergency (& how to ensure action!), campaigning for divestment and ethical reinvestment, working on a Green New Deal for colleges and universities, or supporting the Teach the Future campaign;
