GU Volunteering & Social Justice Festival


Welcome to the GU Volunteering and Social Justice Festival!

The festival is now over, but you can still scroll down to our Content Hub and watch some of the presentations from over the course of the event.

Over 3 days, this virtual festival aimed to give you the chance to listen to and interact with some of our fantastic charity partners, each of whom have different and varied volunteering opportunities available. 

The event consists of a mix of recorded video content and Zoom presentations / Q&As. There are loads of charities to hear from, covering all sorts of areas from environmentalism and conservation to tutoring and language-learning, so browse the content below to see what interests you. 

Many of the opportunities available are still running online during the pande mic and can also be engaged with from around the world.
