Below are some of the groups and societies that the Sustainability Team works with. If you have ideas of anything that could be added, or if your society would like to meet with us, please contact us.

If you would like a more detailed mapping of all the sustainability groups, projects and societies across The University of Cambridge and the wider city, consult the Cambridge Resilience Web. 

The Cambridge Hub

By working closely with over 35 societies, Cambridge Hub connects students with causes and helps build a tighter community of volunteers and change-makers. The University provides financial support for the Engage for Change programme, which is a programme for people who want to learn to make change happen, through having effective conversations with those around them. Participants learn how to design, implement and evaluate your own environmental sustainability-related interventions, using the University as a testing-ground for the skills that you'll develop through the programme. Sustainability projects are also facilitated through collaboration between the University and Cambridge Hub through the Social Innovation Programme.

Cambridge University Environmental Consulting Society

CUECS is a voluntary organisation with a membership of approximately 300 graduates and undergraduates. They aim to have a positive impact upon environmental problems by helping organisations and individuals (primarily within Cambridge) to alter their practices in cost-effective, efficient and environmentally sound ways.

CUSU Ethical Affairs

The Ethical Affairs Team is the part of the students' union which campaigns on social and environmental sustainability. It aims to promote awareness of environmental and ethical issues among the students, coordinate, represent, and empower them to act. They work with JCR & MCR Green/Environmental Officers across the Colleges.

Cambridge University Nature Society 

Cambridge University Nature Society (NatSoc for short) exists to promote the appreciation, enjoyment and understanding of the natural world. The society run trips to nature reserves in and around Cambridge and host talks and other events relating to conservation, natural history and ecology. Membership is free, and while most of their members are current Cambridge University students, all are welcome.
