Brief Description of Society Activities
We are the Newcastle University branch of People and Planet, a UK-wide student network which campaigns for social and environmental justice. People and Planet Newcastle holds regular events aimed at raising awareness about and taking action on climate breakdown, migrant justice, workers' rights and other social and environmental issues. We work in solidarity with other student groups and grassroots movements around the world, aiming to empower the next generation of change-makers to help fight for social and environmental justice.
Activities will include regular actions and meetings, informative sessions (e.g. film showings, presentations, discussion groups) about social and environmental justice issues, as well as activism and campaigning training for students.
People and Planet Society evolved out of the Newcastle University Fossil Free campaign, an award-winning and long-standing campaign in which students have been pressuring the university to remove its investments in the fossil fuel industry and fossil fuel finance for over 5 years. The Fossil Free campaign will continue with People and Planet Society as its new home.
Other current People and Planet campaigns include Undoing Borders, Sweatshop Free and Divest Barclays. See the People and Planet website for more details.
We look forward to meeting you! Please pay your membership fee so we can become ratified as a society.
