Do you know how easy it is to be a little greener? It’s so easy you can do it in your sleep! Find out how you can get involved with our Green Team no matter what time you’ve got to spare.
Green Team: If you’ve got an hour or two free most weeks you can join the Green Team. Being part of the Green Team will give you experience in event planning, managing volunteers, and AUBSU will provide sustainability training too. If you’d like to have a go at helping out, email AUBSU.
Green Volunteer: If you’d like to join the AUBSU when they’re planting trees, cleaning beaches or creating green spaces but don’t have the time to help with the planning then you can still help out. Plus, if you volunteer 10 or more hours of your time in the year and you’ll get a certificate and be in with a chance with winning the “Green Volunteer of the Year” award. Just let AUBSU know you want to get involved and they’ll add you to the mailing list.
