People & Planet

People & Planet is the UK's leading student network campaigning on world poverty, human rights and climate change http://peopleandplanet. Org

Founded 1969

  • Mission statement

    People & Planet campaigns to end world poverty, defend human rights and protect the environment. We have the largest student network in Britain and our award winning campaigns have changed minds, lifestyles, government policy, and multi-billion pound corporates. We are currently campaigning on climate change, economic justice and the unaccountable power of corporations.

    People & Planet exists to educate, inspire and support young people as agents for change in social and political life. Our aim is to create a generation of activists, who will be engaged in working for economic, social and environmental justice.

    Our campaigns have had a massive global impact: we have helped 8,000 more people in Thailand get AIDS and HIV treatment, our award winning Green League this year has seen 71% of universities cut their carbon emissions, and more than 120 universities have official Fairtrade status.
