What is Shared Planet?

Shared Planet is the UK’s largest student gathering on world poverty, human rights and the environment. It’s a weekend packed full of inspiring speakers, practical and informative workshops, debates, films, stalls and fun.

Additionally, Shared Planet 2013 happened alongside the UK Fossil Free Tour in London, Friday 1st November.

Shared Planet is open to all young people and students over 16 who want to find out about the world’s big problems, share the solutions and work together to ensure we are on the right side of history!

In 2013 we held the event at a college for the first time, NewVIc College, Newham, London.

People & Planet’s campaigns at Shared Planet

  • We launched our Fossil Free campaign, which aims to expose and sever the ties between UK universities and the fossil fuel industry. We believe universities have a responsibility to tackle climate change and divest from fossil fuels now!

  • The launch of our new Sweatshop Free campaign, all about workers rights in the garments and electronic industries, and what our universities, schools and colleges can do to help.
