Who can get involved?
All parts of a university have a role to play, whether you are a student, researcher, member of staff or faculty. Find out about our Student Ambassadors programme, network with researchers working on Nature Positive themes, and share resources with staff tackling their impacts on nature in our global community of institutions.

We are developing a thriving Student Ambassadors programme, empowering students to take action for nature on their campuses towards Nature Positive and share experiences and resources with other students across the world.
We are excited to link with researchers working on Nature Positive themes, such as nature based solutions, biodiversity measurement and nature restoration, communications around nature and climate, landscape architecture and wider sustainability themes.
The staff responsible for managing university grounds and facilities, estates and sustainability teams, procurement and catering all have an important role to play in addressing an institution’s impacts on nature. A working group with representatives at all levels and including management, academic experts and students is likely to be the best way to achieve long lasting change. Visit our resources page to see the latest tools and guidance to help you on your journey.
Collaborate with us
We are interested to link up with higher education, sustainability and youth networks to help scale our impact and explore new approaches to tackling shared problems. We are establishing Regional Hubs to provide support and develop communities of institutions working together to overcome common challenges. Please contact us to find your nearest Hub or to explore collaborations.
Green dots on the map represent people from universities that are part of our Nature Positive Universities network. These are people from all parts of a university – students, researchers, staff and senior management who have signed up to be be part of our community.
Please contact us to be connected with other members of your institution who are part of the network so you can work together. (Please note that Pledges take a day or so to appear on the map)
Universities who have taken the Nature Positive Pledge are marked in yellow.
Universities where there are Nature Positive Student Ambassadors are circled in red.
We are developing tools and guidance for each stage of the Nature Positive Pledge. We will provide links to all reports and documentation here as we develop them. We encourage you to make the Pledge and join the other Founding universities who are starting this journey. We would love to hear how you have approached each aspect of the Pledge so we can share it with our wider network and inspire change.
