We are a group of students from Bristol who work to raise awareness of the links between environmental change and health. Our key aims are:

  • Political Action: We aim to help wider change though bringing the links of health and climate into political discourse. We do this through joining protests and marches across Bristol, or through directly reaching out to politicians through letter writing sessions.
  • Schools Projects: Through our Schools Project we are cooperating with local schools and youth groups to educate the pupils about climate change, its potential impacts on their lives and ways to act. We guide them through a set of workshops to provide an in-depth learning experience. Our Schools Project is always looking for new volunteers, so get in touch with us if you are interested in helping. 
  • Sustainable Lifestyles: We aim to promote sustainable and healthy lifestyle. This includes through increasing the presence of plants in indoor spaces (such as libraries) across the university and encouraging low carbon-footprint diets and eating.
  • Curriculum Changes: One of our focus areas will be to work on more sustainable curricula for medicine students. We are engaging in conversations about how to make sustainability a mandatory part of teaching.


As Healthy Planet Bristol we form the local branch of the UK wide organisation Healthy Planet, which has been active for several years. We are a partner organisation of Students for Global Health who “educate, advocate and act on wider health issues across the world."


Roles on committee available! There are roles available on the committee such as communications lead and Curriculum Lead. This is a great way to get more involved in a society!

COVID19 Update: Due to COVID19, in-person visits to schools and other activities have been suspended. We are working on ways that we can still get involved in helping schools under the current circumstances.
