Founding Principles

  1. Social Justice. Sheffield is a city of deep inequality, we believe the institution should take active steps to combat this. Practically, this means investing in local labour and communities to deliver this construction on campus
  2. Climate Justice The impacts of and responsibility for climate change are unevenly distributed. As an affluent institution in the global north, this implies strong duties for climate action. Practically, this means reducing our own carbon emissions and being strong advocate for significant climate action in the Sheffield City Region.
  3. Inclusivity. We believe that we have a duty to actively include people who might not otherwise join this campaign. Doing so enriches the movement. Practically this means thinking hard about making our practices inclusive, and ensuring that we reach outside our bubble when we recruit.
