A few quotes from volunteers

I would definitely recommend the programme to other students. 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.

I have always been passionate about doing more to take care of the environment and I wanted to be proactive 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.
