How Can you get involved?
Regardless of what campus you are based in there are various ways you get involved with sustainability! Below are the main ways you can join in and contribute to UCA’s green growth.
They are ways that every student can contribute to change at UCA. They happen once a term and sustainability is a key theme! You can give feedback and feed into green campaigns and decisions being made at the Union and University.
The next campus forums are:
Canterbury – 10th May at 4:30pm in Cragg Seminar Room
Epsom – 9th May 4:30pm in 120
Farnham – 8th May 4:30pm in W612
Rochester – 11th May at 4:30pm in the X-Change
There are societies whose main aims involve green issues and involving students in projects and sustainability initiatives. If there is no sustainability related society on your campus, starting one is super easy and the Students’ Union is here to help you. We offer training and support in putting on events and activities.
The current affiliated societies you can join are:
Canterbury Vegan and Vegetarian Society – Meet like minded people, make friends, introduce and bring awareness to the veganism and vegetarian movements and share recipes.
Canterbury Growth Project Society – Leading the charge with a rejuvenation project to the area behind halls and architecture block. Want to grow your own food? This is the society for you!
Farnham Sustainability Society – A little bit of everything! Meet like minded people, volunteer in up keeping the Secret Garden and get involved in campaigns on campus.
Go Green March
Every year the Students’ Union organizes events dedicated to sustainability. This year we have gone bigger than ever before and organised a whole month of activities across the four campuses! Our Go Green March featured a bike repair session, Repair Cafe, Environmenstrual talk hosted by the Women’s Environmental Network and much more!
