Shine On Students
A campaign for climate action and environmental justice made for student organizations.
“Climate change is the most critical issue facing our generation and doing nothing isn’t an option anymore.” – Sebastian, Montreal
“The climate crisis is an urgent, all-encompassing issue! This is why I work with Greenpeace at my university, and why I will participate in the Climate Strike.”
“Working at my university’s sustainability office has help me learn more about the effects of climate change on our local and international community. We need more people working on the institutional level of influence to make changes to mitigate the effects of climate change worldwide.” – Miranda
Solar lights are changing lives and you can too. Students can now join Let There Be Light International as we donate solar lights to vulnerable students in off-grid communities in sub-Saharan Africa. Students living in energy poverty often struggle to study without safe lights. Many students have experienced burns or house fires and even have had their books go up in flames when using kerosene lamps for light at home. That’s why S.O.S focuses on students and the power we have to change the world when we Shine On together.
If you are a representative of a student organization, you can fill out the form below to express your interest in joining S.O.S. The S.O.S team will get back to you within 24 hours!
Once we join, what’s expected of our group?
There are no set expectations of S.O.S participants. We only ask that you have a genuine passion to be involved in climate action and making a difference. You can do this in numerous ways such as raising awareness online, tabling on your campus, hosting an event, raising funds for solar programming in Africa, and many other ways!
How much does participation in the program cost?
Nothing! Being an active member of S.O.S is always free.
How much money should we be raising and how?
There is no minimum or maximum limit. You can aim to raise any quantity in any amount of time you wish. We’ll provide you with dates & events for which you can aim to raise a certain amount of money. Fundraising is only one of many ways in which you can support global climate action.
You can take donations digitally through an online campaign. Or, you can take donations in-person by tabling or hosting an event on your campus by taking cash or checks.
Sharpen your leadership skills by taking action today to help fight climate change and environmental injustice.
Join a group of climate leaders and have the opportunity to share stories and impact lives together.
