Get involved

Get involved

Whether you need help making sustainable changes, would like to get involved in our staff and student sustainability programmes, or volunteer some of your time to make a difference in the community, we’re here to help.

We have a huge range of opportunities and events for both staff and students to get involved in. Alongside regular workshops and activities we hold events during Welcome Week, Fresh Start Festival, Climate Week and Campus Live to introduce members of the University of Leeds community to sustainability.

If you're a staff member, you can join our Sustainability Community TEAMs channel to join in the discussion and get peer support from different people working on sustainability across the University. You could also become a Staff Sustainability Architect or be involved in developing a Blueprint sustainability plan for your team, school or service.
