Our programs

SOS International helps members deliver sustainability programs and campaigns specifically designed for educational institutions. Built on a decade of experience, our members’ programs are currently run in several countries around the globe.

Establish your Green Office

A Green Office is a student-led sustainability office that informs, connects and supports students and staff to act on sustainability. Green Offices take a whole-institution approach towards sustainability, promoting education for sustainable development, sustainability governance and green campus projects. The Green Office model was awarded the UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development in 2015.

Take part in Green Impact

Green Impact is a program designed to foster environmentally and socially sustainable practice within organizations. Through a bespoke online toolkit and tailored support, the program promotes staff engagement and student leadership to create behavior change. Green Impact has been awarded the UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development in 2016.

Moreover, we assist in a range of projects, campaigns and other activities initiated by our members, including:

  • Student Refugees – set up an assistance program for people with refugee status to access higher education
  • Sustainability Week – put sustainability in the spotlight at your campus for one week
  • Student Switch-off – compete in an inter-dorm room energy and recycling competition
  • Youth Exchange – engage with a model for individual connections and learning
  • Responsible Futures – push for whole-institution curriculum reform and accreditation
  • Sustainability Influencers – mobilize, engage and empower young people to take action on sustainability issues
