Sign-up to For Good, the free platform that partners students with opportunities to use their education as a force for good.

Do you want to be part of the solution in tackling climate injustice and the biodiversity crisis? Many students will inherit the rapidly changing world. But we can do something about it - and Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS-UK) want to help.

SOS-UK is an educational and sustainability charity founded by the National Union of Students (NUS) to take NUS' transformative work further and faster. Our mission is to get more students learning for, and leading on sustainability, to empower you to tackle the biggest challenge we are facing. We deliver student-led campaigns, projects and programmes to support you to become change agents, including our For Good online platform.

For Good is an online platform that pairs students and young people with opportunities to use their education as a force for environmental, social and economic good. Opportunities include research (including dissertations, PhDs and more), projects ( e.g. practical or creative), and placements. We believe sustainability must include widespread wellbeing and equity, so we work to ensure all placement opportunities to offer the Real Living Wage.

We know students want to gain more opportunities to connect their learning with sustainability, and For Good was launched to do exactly that. Opportunities to tackle real-world problems can support you to develop necessary skills to tackle The Ultimate Real-World Problem - the climate crisis.

The scope of opportunities on our site is broad – from sustainability marketing, research into sustainable nappies, to designing interactive sound/music installations from upcycled rubbish! There’s something for everyone and the best part is: the site is completely free to students and young people.

For Good has given students opportunities to gain real life experience assessing the Sustainable Development Goals, exploring equality in Less Economically Developed countries, understanding the role of trade unions in climate activism and many other experiences! Through these opportunities, students have developed their knowledge about social, environmental and economic challenges, honed their research, critical thinking skills and collaboration skills, and have made excellent professional contacts.

While the problems we’re facing may seem overwhelming, we believe in and recognise the power of students to find effective solutions and create change.
