The article discusses changes regarding student movements in Great Britain. A campaign can no longer be judged on its effectiveness simply according to the number of individuals turning out on the streets to protest, but instead by its ability effectively to engage with its target. Involvement of students in direct action campaigns such as those against climate change is increasing. People & Planet is the Great Britain's largest and longest-running forum for student pressure group. Reflecting changing attitudes in society as a whole, the environment is now playing a leading role in sculpting student attitudes both inside and outside the lecture halls.
