Community involvement

If you are keen to get involved in local voluntary community projects, check out the information below:

Canal Clean Ups:

Approximately 26 million tonnes of plastic pollution ends up in the oceans every year. Keeping our canals and beaches clean is an important way to keep harmful materials away from marine life. Our Environmental Champions will be running BCU Canal Litter Picks with the Canal and River Trust. To find out more contact environment@bcu.ac.uk 

 You can also get involved in community groups such as: National Sealife Birmingham, Canal and River Trust
