Join Transition St Andrews
If nothing else, Transition is about getting involved in your local community. Transition 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. Join our Steering Group which drives Transition forwards
2. Take on an internship
3. Explore research opportunities
3. Get involved in regular volunteer sessions
4. If you are part of another organisation, group, or society, why not collaborate with us on projects and events
5. Utilise our services like The Tree, Bike Pool or Tool Share
6. Attend our events
Why Should I Volunteer with Transition?
Wrapping our heads around environmental issues can often leave us feeling lost and hopeless. This is what 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. 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.
