Event description
The Sustainability Summit is our flagship sustainability event for students, officers and staff from across the movement.

About this Event

Returning for its 6th year, the Sustainability Summit offers workshops, talks and panel discussions with some of the UK’s top environmental activists and campaigners, from organisations including Friends of the Earth and People and Planet, as well as the students and students' unions (SUs) leading the youth climate movement.

This year's event will focus on the climate emergency, and how we can influence our universities and colleges, politicians and wider society to take bold action, as promises and good intentions alone won't stop climate chaos, nor fix systemic inequality.

Connect with others involved with environmental and climate justice campaigning , and gain practical skills in community organising, campaign planning, liberation and sustainability, and so much more.

Agenda highlights include

  • A keynote speech from Danielle Rowley MP, Shadow Minister for Climate Justice and Green Jobs
  • A workshop from leaders of the Youth Climate Strikes on how to support the movement and get involved
  • A Q&A on fighting the rise of the far right through climate justice campaigning
  • A workshop on how to navigate and influence politics from the UK Parliament Education Team

The Summit is open to all students over the age of 16, as well as officers and staff from both the SU and college/university. Some SUs are sending their Environmental Committees.

We are committed to making our events as accessible as possible. The venue is wheelchair accessible, and prayer and quiet spaces will be available throughout. If you have any questions regarding accessibility, please do not hesitate to get in touch hello@sos-uk.org
