Be a Part of Transition St Andrews
If nothing else, Transition is about getting involved in your local community. Our community is made up of people all across the University and local community. Coming together, we are taking practical action on the climate crisis, building community resilience and cultivating a shared vision of a fairer, low carbon future. The ways to get involved:
1. Be a part of our Steering Group which drives Transition forwards
2. Take on responsibility with a project (these can be turned into internships)
3. Take part in weekly volunteering sessions
4. If you are part of another organisation, group, or society, collaborate with us on projects and events
5. Make the most of the services we provide like The Tree or Bike Pool
6. Attend our events

Why Should I Volunteer with Transition?
Wrapping our heads around environmental issues can often leave us feeling disheartened and unhopeful. This is the very thing that inspired the Transition movement. As a grassroots group, Transition is about bringing people together, making climate action fun and celebrating our community and the work we are doing. Simply, taking local action on the climate crisis is one of the best ways to tangibly make a difference.
Not to mention, the Transition community is full of colourful, kind and creative folk who are worth meeting!
See below to find our more about the various volunteer opportunities that we have on offer or are present around the University. Under each of them you can click to directly email the project lead.
Research and Project Opportunities
We offer a number of opportunities for both students and members of the community to support us with our research, including the opportunity to undertake a dissertation or thesis on an environmental or sustainability topic with support from Transition or Environment Team staff.
