How it works
Oxford Climate Club is a new initiative to support local 15-18 year olds in their understanding, engagement and action over climate and other sustainability issues. From September 2019, we will run fun after-school workshops with local/university experts at a university venue, and Saturday trips to local sites and businesses. There will be two workshops/trips per term; six throughout the year.
We are looking for volunteers to help set up and run the events and trips, and market them to schools through direct engagement and social media. Organisation (as far as needed), support and training will be provided from the events and marketing teams at the Oxford based Social Enterprise, Leadership in Global Change (www.ligc.co.uk).
We will break down the tasks into specific roles, depending on the interests of individual volunteers - so there’s lots of room to choose what you’d like to contribute. Get in touch and we can chat!
When & where
There will be two workshops/trips per term throughout the year. Workshops will be after-school hours, and trips will happen on Saturdays. Transport for the trips will be provided, and workshops will take place in central Oxford.
We ask volunteers to commit for a minimum of one term, but you’d be more than welcome to stay involved for longer! The time commitment per term will be around 10-15 hours, but could be less or more, depending on your availability – we can find a role to fit your availability and interests.
