Join for light refreshments and snacks and to meet yours and others Sustainability mentors and mentees on the Wolfson Sustainability Mentor Scheme. For information on the mentoring scheme or to sign-up, see the Details section below.

This event is organised by the Interdisciplinary Research Hub on Sustainability & Conservation.


Mentors, you might also want to consider:

  • How did you get your job post-Wolfson?
  • What are some professional insights you’ve discovered since leaving Wolfson?
  • What insights do you wish you had been given?
  • What things do you wish you had done while at University/Wolfson?
  • What is your current occupation and how did you get this role?
  • What do you most enjoy / least enjoy about your job?
  • What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
  • Which living or historical figure inspires you most?

Mentees, you might also want to consider:

  • What jobs or industries are you thinking to apply too after you leave Wolfson?
  • How are you getting on with your course right now?
  • What would you be doing if you had more time?
  • Do you have any concerns about jobs/careers?
  • Why did you pick the degree you are on?
  • Which living or historical figure inspires you most?


Sign-up as a potential mentor or mentee using this Microsoft form. The scheme commitment is low and in your control at all times - we only ask that you meet up at least once in the first instance! Registration is always open, sign up at your convenience as a mentor, mentee or both, and you will be assigned to someone appropriate!

For all those with an interest in sustainability, ecology and climate. The world needs to increase its action, community and knowledge on sustainability, ecological and climate related topics. We therefore invite the international Wolfson community to meet each other to share knowledge, advice and expertise.

Grown from our Theory of Change (Community Resilience branch) from Wolfson’s Sustainability & Conservation Hub, we provide avenues for sustainability-focused Wolfson alumni, Fellows and friends to mentor the Wolfson student body and staff, creating knowledge transfer and cross-talk across our international community. Being a Mentor is as involved or low maintenance as desired, from a casual chat, to occasional advising on work efforts, to actively supporting students in official projects. The level of commitment is very much up to you and the relationship you want to nurture.

This event will take place in the Combination Room on the first floor of our main building. It has step-free access with a lift and there is an accessible toilet located on both the first floor of the building and ground floor.
