Learn what student Chapters do, what support they receive and how to start your own.
University student Chapters are advocating for globally responsible practice through extra curricular activities.
Many Chapters run workshops to support their members to think about different issues or topics in and around engineering. Highlights in recent years have been workshops focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Many Chapters host panel events and talks throughout the year to share new ideas and topics with their members. We can support you to find suitable speakers too!
Social activities are an important part of running a Chapter. They allow you to grow your membership and provide opportunities for students to meet new people who are passionate about global responsibility.
Projects provide an educational space for students to put their learning into action, support the local community and ensure they have a good understanding of global responsibility.
