The For Good platform has been created to empower students to innovate and progress all aspects of sustainability through meaningful research, projects and placements.
Our For Good offerings give students opportunities to gain experience and knowledge of working in a variety of sectors, gaining important employability skills and developing competencies as responsible citizens. By partnering with organisations for projects, research or placements students are able to turn their education into a force for good, demonstrating the positive impact our education institution have the potential to offer. Targeted research, projects and placements ensure organisations benefit from capacity building, bright ideas and creative solutions for progressing sustainability challenges.
Students can register on the platform free of charge and browse opportunities, and SOS-UK facilitates introductions for suitable matches.
There are several ways universities and colleges can get involved in and make use of our For Good platform:
1. Tell your students about it. It's totally free for all students to use the website.
2. Find out what it offers your students.
3. Tell academics about it. As a member institution, academics can register a project or area of interest, to start setting up a partnership before handing it over to their students.
4. Find out about the additional benefits that come with membership. These include making it supporting your students to find partnerships, as well as promoting Living Labs/internal opportunities for academic and non-academic departments of your institution.
We work with you to develop meaningful research and practical projects as well as placement opportunities that will be mutually beneficial for your organisation and the students you partner with.
As a member we will promote any sustainability-related opportunities you post on our platform as well as make suggestions for partnerships. We will also support you and the students you are partnered with before, during and on completion of the partnership.
We will connect you with students who want to turn their education into a force for good and address real-world sustainability challenges.
