  • Be part of shaping the future of the Undoing Borders and Sweatshop Free campaigns.
  • Meet inspiring young organisers from around the UK Europe.

People & Planet Projects

Fossil Free

The fossil fuel industry is unequivocally driving us towards a global climate crisis: we will not keep dangerous climate change at bay without halting our extraction of fossil-fuels. People & Planet is calling on universities to move their money from fossil fuel investments to green energy; to stop the greenwash and to support a clean energy future for all.

People & Planet University League

The only league table of UK universities focussing on sustainability and transparency. The People & Planet University League has driven massive improvements in environmental management and monitoring in its 7 year lifetime. Students want and expect their universities to be taking responsibility for a sustainable future and keeping warming below 2°C.

Sweatshop Free

Sweatshop Free is part of a movement of people across the world, who are coming together to win workers’ rights for sweatshop labourers. Our campaign brings together students and workers in a coalition capable of challenging the root causes of unacceptable working conditions.

Undoing Borders

It is wrong to criminalise the movement of vulnerable people. Especially when their displacement is the result of our global political and economic system.  We are a student movement fighting for the full political, social and economic rights of all migrants, and for a borderless world.

Divest Barclays

If we are serious about preventing catastrophic warming, we need to stop Barclays funding any new coal mines, drill any new fracking sites or build any more pipelines. Not a single one. Take action to tell them we’re done expanding the fossil fuel frontier.
