Student opportunities with environmental project
We have a great opportunity for LJMU students to develop your skills and experience by working on an online environment and climate project.
The university has been awarded funding from the Community Environment Fund to develop an online platform to help young people in the Liverpool City Region learn more about climate and the environment.
To create this platform, we would like to draw on the wide range of expertise of our students and include you in the design and development of this project.
The project will not require too much of your time, just a commitment to help to co-produce some content for the project. To do this, LJMU is working with Liverpool-based social enterprise, Farm Urban.
Farm Urban operates Liverpool's first underground vertical farm and uses hi-tech urban farming as a way to bring people together to learn about our food systems and their impact on the planet.
This is supported by their online learning platform, Eco-Verse, which provides resources and activities for people to develop positive solutions to some of the urgent environmental challenges that we face.
If you’re able to help out, as well as producing content, you will work closely with LJMU staff and Farm Urban's education team, giving you the opportunity to:
- Research and create content around an environmental issue that you are passionate about
- Attend a masterclass on storytelling and science communication
- Develop project management skills using the software and tools that will deliver this project
- Receive guidance on ways to feature the skills you develop on your CV and an optional CV feedback session from one of Farm Urban's directors
- Visit Farm Urban's underground vertical farm in the Baltic Triangle
If you would like to get involved, please email Dr Tim Lane, programme leader for the BSc in Climate Change by Friday 11 June.
