About

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

Due to COVID-19, all of our events, of course including socials, will primarily be online. Competitions such as growing, photography, and cooking will be scheduled regularly to keep everyone engaged and remind everyone that we are here not just for educational fun but also for social fun! Despite activities mainly being online, we want all of you to feel connected and apart of this special society!

If you have an idea for a social or educational event, please do get in touch via our social media and email! Thank you!

Events

Enhance your knowledge - listen to talks from guest speakers and lecturers 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. Physical activities will be socially distanced and face coverings will be mandatory unless an official note to explain why you do not require one will be necessary.

Past Events 19/20

  • Thurs, 7th Nov 13:00-16:30 -  A walk around Dartmoor with talks from Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust (one of our chosen charities this year) - Places are limited so be sure to purchase your FREE ticket on our product page. 
  • Thurs, 7th Nov, 18:30-22:00 - Film Night in Jill Craigie. Post Halloween/Guy Fawkes Night screening. Members get to vote on what we show here
  • 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.)
