Roots: Bringing students together to challenge the root causes of poverty

Are you passionate about poverty and angered by injustice? Roots is a completely FREE conference for students to explore the roots of global poverty.

Come and hear about Christian Aid’s trailblazing campaigns work on tax and climate justice, learn how to plan a successful campaign, and get a rare opportunity to apply for funding to organise your own event.

The weekend will cover everything from an introduction to Christian Aid’s tax and climate justice campaigns, to a first-hand account of climate related disaster in the Philippines, to a chance to engage with an MP on the issues you care about, and tons of ideas for running your own campaign at university.

Not only will you hear from inspiring speakers from across the sector, but there’s also a rare opportunity for you to get funding for an event or campaign at your university. This weekend is a must for anyone with an interest in social justice and a passion to plant seeds of change at their uni.

Share with other students from England and Wales and become part of a national network of young people who are passionate about promoting social justice and ending poverty.

All expenses and accommodation are covered by the Christian Aid Collective. To book your place, email with your name, university, gender and dietary requirements and we’ll send you a schedule for the weekend. Places are limited so make sure you don’t miss out!
