Change is urgently needed to tackle the injustices and unsustainability in our world

We believe education can bring about that change


SOS-UK is a student-led education charity focusing on sustainability
. We know environmental sustainability cannot be achieved in isolation, so our work spans across issues of justice and wellbeing as well.

We believe in lifelong learning and work on sustainability across all forms of education from early years to workplace learning. We act as a support crew - facilitating, encouraging and mentoring people wherever they are on their sustainability journey in sustainability.

We see the power and potential in students and young people to be at the forefront of change. We work alongside them as equal partners in their sustainability leadership journeys.

Through our work we want to see...

More students leading on, and learning for, sustainability.
When students lead on sustainability they develop the knowledge, values, skills, and competencies required to make them great sustainability leaders. We don’t just want organisations to do sustainability for students, it should be done by, with, and through students.

An education system repurposed around the climate emergency and ecological crisis.
Sustainability should be woven through every subject like a golden thread. Every student should be a sustainability student. The education system should serve as a force for good in response to the challenges society faces.

Sustainability that is more inclusive, so it is for everyone.
Research has shown that the sustainability sector in the UK is unrepresentative when it comes to racial and other social and political identities. The negative impacts of sustainability inaction disproportionately affect these underrepresented groups, both globally and here in the UK. The sector must represent these voices.

Our family

SOS-UK is an educational charity created by students and staff at the National Union of Students (UK) in 2019 in response to the climate emergency and ecological crisis.

We have separate governance and are financially independent from NUS, although we are proud to remain part of the NUS family, alongside Endsleigh Insurance and OneVoiceDigital.  The NUS President is also the SOS-UK President. 

SOS-UK is the charity partner of the TOTUM student discount scheme, using the donations made by students who sign up as members of TOTUM to deliver our transformational projects and campaigns.

We're proud to be members of SOS-International, joining student-led and student-focused organisations around the world to form a coordinated effort aiming to amplify the voices of students and influence global systemic change for sustainability.

Any wider partnerships will be considered under our partnerships policy.
