Environmental Hub

Whether you're a budding environmental activist or branching out into being eco-friendly for the first time, the Environmental Hub is the place to keep up with the latest news about environmental activism on campus.

Sustainability Societies and Campaigns 

These LSESU societies that have environmental activism at the heart of what they do. Joining a society or environmental campaign is a great way to engage with a network of environmentally like-minded people. There are a number of societies that are directly focused on sustainability issues and some that cross over with environmental issues. Regardless of which society you choose, you’ll meet great people and contribute to making LSE more green-minded.

We encourage all of our societies to make sustainable choices, and all societies have the chance to earn a bronze, silver, or gold leaf for their environmentally-friendly efforts. We reward our most committed societies at our Societies Awards, find out more here
