Sustainbility Saturday Club at UEA

A new opportunity at the University of Sussex for students aged 13-16

This year we are launching a new Saturday Club at the University of Sussex, with our first session on 20th November. Our Club at Sussex will focus on sustainability, and so we’re looking for young people who are passionate about environmental issues and would like to learn more about tackling climate change and climate injustice. Through the lens of sustainability, we hope to give them an insight into studying a range of humanities and social science subjects at university level, including law, psychology, creative writing and politics.

The National Saturday Club is a UK-wide network, supported by Arts Council England and the Department for Education. This is a unique programme open to all abilities and will help to build skills and confidence as well as demonstrate pathways to further study and careers. Each year, the programme gives 1,500 young people the unique opportunity to study subjects they love for free on Saturday mornings. In addition to weekly clubs held on campus, students will have the opportunity to attend events hosted in London by the National Saturday Club and a masterclass delivered by Chatham House.

Each Club has a limited number of places and so we’ll be prioritising young people from backgrounds underrepresented in Higher Education. The programme is free of charge for participants, with lunch and the cost of travel to/from campus on public transport also covered by the university for local students.
