Are you interested in all things sustainable and want to make a positive impact whilst at King’s? The King’s Sustainability team have a range of volunteering opportunities, events, and resources to learn more about climate and sustainability. 

Explore two of the key projects below and check out all the ways to get involved here.

The KEATS Sustainability & Climate module and seminar series

Want to boost your knowledge of sustainability AND make your CV stand out by gaining a King’s Experience Award? Then the KEATS module on Sustainability & Climate is what you are looking for!

This is an open-access and interdisciplinary module covering the biggest topics in sustainability, from climate change and food to sustainable finance and social justice.

Fully co-created by a Take Action Team of 50 students, staff, and alumni, the module is complemented by a monthly seminar series and other events. Register online to keep updated.

The module provided me with additional insights in the topic of sustainability, even though, or precisely because, I thought I already had a solid knowledge basis. Some of my – likely biased – thoughts or perceptions were challenged and I learned to appreciate the intersectionality of the effects of climate change as well as climate action and also its implications for mental health were very interesting to learn about.

King’s Climate Action Network

Looking to build skills in project management and/or implementation while taking collective climate action?

Then join the King’s Climate Action Network (CAN) - an open, interdisciplinary forum bringing together people from the King’s community who are passionate about climate action.

Established in October 2020, the network now has more than 300 members who implement actions from the co-created Sustainability & Climate Action Plan. This year’s Take Action Teams include projects around Education for Sustainability, engagement with local schools, a project with King’s Food, and a cycling project.

You can get involved with varying levels of commitment: as a part-time paid Coordinator, as a Volunteer, as a general member, or setting up your own project with the CAN’s support.

Being a part of the Students and Education group allows me to see how King's is tackling sustainability issues firsthand across campus and helps me to be a part of the solution.
