Without the help of volunteers, it would be impossible to do what we do.
How you can help out:
Help at events / one off volunteering (London-based)
This might be stewarding a march, holding banners at a solidarity protest, handing out flyers, or making placards. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put you on a list of people to ask when we need help (sometimes at short notice!). It's useful to know if you are available on weekdays as well as weekends/evenings.
Outreach in your local area
At the moment we are mainly focusing on building for the global climate strike on 20th September. There is more information here about how you can help. We can provide flyers, stickers, etc. Think about how you could talk about climate change in general, and the climate strike in particuar, with your existing groups and networks - whether that's colleagues in your workplace, parents at your child's school, local trade unions or political parties (check out our trade union group), conservation and wildlife groups, faith organisations... Maybe there's an event where you could run a stall or even in your local high street?
Of course, in many places there are existing climate campaigns - if you're involved in one of those, do let us know about what's happening in your area, as well as letting your local group know about what the Campaign against Climate Change is doing!
The office is only open on a part-time basis, usually Tuesdays and Thursdays, occasionally more often at busy times of the year. Because of this, we are unfortunately unable to offer summer internships. We look mainly for volunteers who are available for a day or two a week for a longer period (for example 4-6 months).
Tasks for office volunteers include:
- keeping our website up-to-date
- research for campaign briefings
- outreach for events
- practical support with events
- general admin
Good IT skills and excellent English a must.
