Hello all you brilliant People & Planet campaigners.
It’s my third day at the People & Planet support office and I can’t stop smiling. The atmosphere is buzzing as we fresh-faced interns learn about all the exciting events and actions that are planned for this year.
I have been active in the network since my first term at The University of York. My earliest memory as a new-born campaigner is spending one winter’s day dressed up as a caged chicken… for a campaign of course.
It is fair to say that I am obsessed with food co-operatives and growing initiatives as really positive local solutions to help fight the problem of climate change. I helped set up Scoop- York University’s Food Co-op and founded Edible Uni- a guerilla gardening project turning unused green areas of campuses into edible spaces for all to use and enjoy.
My new role at People & Planet is as Climate Change Campaign intern. I will be working on our Going Greener:Transition Universities campaign helping you to bring about a low-carbon, resillient and community-led education sector.
Please do contact me (on firstname.lastname@example.org) with any new ideas you have for Going Greener campaigns at your University or just to update me with what you’ve been working on. You can find me on Facebook or on Twitter
Can’t wait to hear from you!
