Fair Trade Champions

RMIT is committed to embedding sustainability into every aspect of the University. As a student you have the opportunity to become a Sustainability Ambassador; leading the way to a more sustainable campus. Students from any discipline are encouraged to apply.

The program requires students to complete 2 mandatory training sessions totalling 5 hours on the City Campus in February prior to the semester commencing, followed by 15 hours of voluntary work throughout the year.

Activities may include:

  • Assisting at events on campus
  • Attending workshops and seminars that encourage critical thinking on sustainability related topics
  • Participating in a mentoring program; linking students to industry professionals

The conclusion of semester two marks the end of the program; students who have fulfilled the 5 hours’ initial training and 15 hours of voluntary work will be eligible to receive recognition of their efforts on their transcript. Acknowledgement of students’ participation in the program will highlight valuable attributes employers look for such as:

  • Being proactive
  • Socially and environmentally aware
  • Taking initiative
  • Dedication
  • Networking
  • Teamwork
  • Timeliness
  • Strong work ethic
