We're sorry, this project is not currently recruiting volunteers. You can see a list of our available projects here.

Are you interested in fair-trade, environmental issues, waste, recycling and energy? Then the Environmental Champions group is for you!
We work on sustainability issues in Cardiff and organise a variety of activities throughout the year to make Cardiff a cleaner, greener and safer city including: 

  • Leaf sweeps during the autumn/winter period when there is high leaf fall, making roads, pavements & cycle ways dangerous. Volunteers can help to clear those paths to help make the roads safer.
  • Litter picks - the current pandemic has seen a large increase in the volume of litter in our local areas, volunteers can help with group litter picks, or on a more ad-hoc basis with friends/family. 
  • And opportunities to attend various inputs from organisations; on how to be more sustainable, dispose of your waste properly and safetly, and how to look after your local environment. 

This is a partnership project between SVC, Cardiff Digs, Cardiff City Council, Cardiff Volunteering and Cardiff Met Students' Union. 

Please Note:
