If you want to get more involved in Student Switch Off, find your university page here to find opportunities on your campus. But Student Switch Off is just the beginning, use the resources on this page to find other opportunities to take action on the climate crisis.
Human activity is driving the Climate Crisis, and it is the most vulnerable people who are hit hardest, yet contribute to the crisis the least and drive campaigns for climate justice.
Students in the UK are pushing for greater action on the Climate Crisis, and have the power and privilege to take action. Whatever stage of your climate campaigning journey you are at, there are opportunities for you to get involved and to develop your skills, knowledge and relationships.
Student Switch Off was created to engage those who are nearer the beginning of their journey, providing easy ways to incorporate sustainability into their lives. We see students continuing their campaigning in a variety of ways, within and beyond their living spaces. Find your university page to see how you can get involved in Student Switch Off on your campus.
Adela became a Student Switch Off ambassador after hearing that they could receive free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Adela went on to support further environmental initiatives within the students’ union and complete a LLM in Environment & Climate Change Law.
Whilst Student Switch Off is a behaviour change campaign, we recognise the importance of system change. We think different campaign approaches are important in creating greater action on the climate crisis. The image below shows how campaigning involves different techniques so you can take action in a way that you feel comfortable and support others to do the same.
