There are loads of ways that students can get involved with sustainability and green projects at Sheffield Hallam Students' Union. Your Volunteering team provide support and resources for projects started and run by students, so if you have an idea just get in touch!
Existing projects include When Geography Meets Technology, in which students help to teach children about climate change, and a project within the Botanical Gardens teaching about the importance of green space. Some students have gone on to develop their projects into Social Enterprises, including Love Your Leftovers, who make meals from food that would otherwise be wasted.
We are also partnered with Voluntary Action Sheffield, and you can find loads of volunteer opportunities with existing charities and projects that tackle green issues through their database.
We also have a Vegan Society. Interested in learning more about why veganism is the way forward? Sign up to the Vegan Society.
Where we are able to, Sheffield Hallam Students' Union source our products locally. Where we are unable to, we source our products via the NUS who conduct thorough background checks to ensure that all suppliers conduct ethical business practices.
Sheffield Hallam Students' Union are supporters of the NUS Last Straw Campaign.
