How does it work?

We all have different social, economic and environmental priorities. We all care about different things. And we all have the power (and responsibility) to act. NETpositive takes this into account by providing you with tailored information, resources and opportunities to help you contribute to building a better university, community and environment on your own terms. 

It's all about giving you information and tips tailored to your interests; improving your UCL experience and making a really positive impact.
