Be The Change is a society campaigning for sustainability in Exeter, both on and off campus.
We provide a supportive space for students to tackle issues we are passionate about, with a focus on environmentalism. Being member-led, we are always looking for new projects and welcome anyone with an idea or passion for making change!
Some examples of past projects include:
One of our other projects is VegShare, which provides the opportunity for you to collect local, organic and cheap veg boxes on campus! Find out more here: https://www.facebook.com/vegshare
We also love to collaborate with other socieities from Exeter and further afield. Last year, we collabed with Fem Soc on a sustainable periods campaign and this year we are excited to collab with an environmental society at KCL on an environmental conference, with the aim to make environmentalism education accessible to all students and to create a platform for likeminded students to connect.
We have weekly meetings to work on our projects, and enjoy a good social – usually with pizza!
So if you're enthusiastic about making a difference, we would love to have you on our team!
Our 2021/22 Aims and Objectives:
Continue to facilitate members to make a sustainable and ethical difference socially, economically and/or environmentally, using our project-based approach to maximise high-quality and lasting changes.
Ensure that our environmentalism is intersectional and amplify the work and voices of minority community members.
Support the wellbeing of our members while accommodating their goals. Additionally, instilling leadership, negotiation and other 'core competencies' in our members.
Work closely with the university and organisations in the wider community to foster positive relationships and make positive change.
