A few quotes from volunteers

I would definitely recommend the programme to other students as it gives an insight into the issues the planet is facing that one might not even think about- resulting in one changed attitude that could inspire more people to do the same.

Jess, Leeds
 

I have always been passionate about doing more to take care of the environment and I wanted to be pro-active by doing something alongside my studies. I helped run events as part of my role, it was a great pleasure to work with such a hard-working team.
