London Students Towards Sustainability

PhotoThe student population of London represents a huge resource of time, knowledge and skills, which largely has yet to be harnessed for sustainable development. We will create and facilitate a London-based network to engage, motivate and support students to contribute to sustainable development through their studies and their future careers.

We will access students through their departments and the societies to which they belong. Benefits for members include:

Internship schemes - an online brokerage service will 'match make' students with employers across public and private sectors offering work placements in sustainability-related fields. Bursaries for travel and subsistence will be made available on application.

Events series - a series of three networking / knowledge-sharing events, bringing together students with professionals from sustainability-related fields will promote knowledge and networking. Students involved in events and will gain valuable skills such as e-based, project co-ordination and presentation skills.

E-bulletin and online resources - enabling knowledge-sharing between students and professionals

Research support - a small fund which students could to apply to help cover the costs of original research they wish to explore

- For students, increased sustainability literacy and enhanced employment prospects
- For employers, access to highly motivated student interns & ultimately access to sustainability literate graduates
