Calling all eco-conscious, nature-loving uni students! Join our growing community helping to clean up the planet and get rid of single-use materials for good!

Have you ever thought your University could do more to reduce its environmental footprint?

Maybe you’re an individual looking to gain valuable skills and experience for your own career development? Or perhaps you’re a member of a club, society or department on the search for meaningful volunteer opportunities? Whatever it is, we’d love you to join our Uni Network, to engage students at your university in our mission to tackle litter pollution.


Your involvement will help to spread the message about what we do, and have a real, positive impact on your local area and community.


What it would mean to be part of our Uni Network:

  • Organise and lead litter picks for other students within your university.
  • Become an admin for your university’s Planet Patrol Facebook group to keep other students informed about clean-up activities and taster sessions, news and local updates.
  • Create lasting connections with other societies, clubs and departments within your university, with the potential to connect with other unis too!
  • Encourage and support local cafes, bars and restaurants to take the Planet Patrol business pledge to reduce waste – coming in early 2021!
  • Gain essential skills and valuable experience that can help towards your personal career development.

To join the Planet Patrol Uni Network, you don’t need any qualifications. We’re looking for students who are organised, enthusiastic, good communicators and relationship-builders. Most importantly, we want students who are passionate about our mission to achieve a cleaner, litter-free future and who want to get others involved in helping us make this a reality.

If this sounds like you, then we’d LOVE for you to join our team – and here’s how…

Please note that the agreement that you will sign during the application process will only commence when Planet Patrol provides confirmation to you that you have passed the screening process and have been accepted to join our Uni Network!

Now that you’ve been accepted, we will send you your toolkit with everything you need to kickstart your new movement. We will also organise delivery of our branded clean up equipment (if necessary).


You will be offered ongoing support from Planet Patrol, and be part of a supportive community where you can find and share inspiration, new ideas and questions.

Not for you? Not a problem – you can still volunteer in other ways – you can check them out here! You can also meet the rest of our team here!
