Ideas for action digital campaign

With our digital campaign “Ideas for action” we create an international dialogue where we share our brilliant solutions for effective actions on universities.

During March to June 2020, we engage students to impact universities to start reducing their emissions in line with the climate science. Our message is that students call on universities to take climate action. Let’s take action now!

To help universities take action we collect and develop students’ ideas, of brilliant solutions on halving the emissions in three years, that we have a dialogue with universities about. The more ideas, the better solutions!

In the campaign the We Don’t Have Time app and web page are our tools to collect students ideas and having dialogue with universities. Climate Students has one account that works both for the app and our web page.

Digital campaign in 3 steps

Our campaign is in three steps. Step 1 with collecting Climate ideas runs during March until Earth day April 22. Then in step 2 during May, we start pressure with Climate warnings and love. Last, in the end of May until July we finish with a dialogue about our brilliant solutions developed from all ideas by a jury.

To reach out with our campaign we need to actively engage students. This can be done by local Climate Students groups having for example these activities:

  • arranging climate idea digital hackathons
  • inviting local media to workshops and hackathons
  • spreading the word in social media.

You can most likely integrate the campaign in all of your activities. Start your activity with a short campaign information and instruction on how to use the app to post ideas to Climate Students, so participants can post ideas during or after the activity.

We are saving the future

Climate Students was formed by students at SLU in Uppsala. In November 2018 students from Uppsala, Gothenburg and Stockholm founded the organisation Climate Students Sweden. Now we have started an international network with students in European countries. Our mission is to quickly grow as an international student movement, made up of local groups all over the world, and save the future.
