About

In the Environmental Society, we aim to bring people together who are passionate about the environment and all things green no matter what you study. We want to inspire and engage people, create conversations and debates whilst having lots of laughs along the way.

 

Socials

Big monthly socials! With challenges throughout the night and prizes to win! We do lots of themed nights out including things like endangered animals, just the right thing for throwing some shapes after a few. We will also organise environmental talks, scenic walks, and more! We are driven by what our members want from socials and listen to them for ideas!

 

Events

Enhance your knowledge - listen to talks from guest speakers on a range of different subjects. 

Broaden your perspective - take part in or watch debates from experts on fracking and other contentious environmental issues. 

Make a difference - involve yourself in activities from beach cleans to volunteering and everything in between. 

Share ideas – regular meets and coffee mornings will take place to exchange ideas with like-minded people.

  • Thurs, 17th Oct, 18:30-22:00 - Film Night in Jill Craigie. Before the Flood 'If you could know the truth about the threat of climate change — would you want to know? Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.' (Facebook Event Page)
  • Tues, 29th Oct, 18:00-21:00 - Bowling Social. Come and join us for a fun evening of bowling and get to know the committee and other society members. We'll be meeting on the SU roof at 6pm to walk over to Tenpin Bowling at the Barbarian Leisure Park. It's half price for students, costing £4.28 for one game or £7.45 for 2, so please remember to bring your student ID! (Facebook Event Page)
  • Sat, 16th Nov, 13:00 - A beach clean with Plymouth Beach Clean, followed by a meet-up in the sustainability focused Boston Tea Party (EnviroSoc members get an incredible 10% discount) (Facebook Event Page)
  • Tues, 19th Nov, 18:45-20:30 - Livestreaming of the annual IES Bruntwood Lecture. The Burntwood Lecture is an annual evening lecture where an eminent environmental speaker is invited by the IES to present on a current, critical and often controversial topic. This year's lecture will explore 'The entropy problem and critical trade-offs' presented by Professor Sir Ian Boyd. Considering Sir Ian's recent departure from the Government after seven years as Chief Scientific Adviser we anticipate that his lecture will provide an honest - possibly controversial - insight into environmental governance and provoke an interesting debate. (This event will be free, however tickets will be made available shortly - location and Facebook Event pending)
  • Sat, 23rd Nov, 09:30 - A volunteering day with local charity Devon and Cornwall Food Action (One of our chosen charities this year.)
