Bootcamp 5 is in full swing! Here are the amazing Bootcampers:
Over 200 people applied to come on this camp, here are the lucky ones who made it through:
I work as campaign officer at Caritas Internationalis where I spend time hatching plans as to how to make the most out of the untapped campaigning potential of a global confederation of 164 national member organisations. I consider myself particularly fortunate in having been exposed to a variety of cultures/countries over the years. I love maximising a sense of belonging and ownership in any projects I embark on and I’m keen on applied theatre as a form of social cohesion and change.
I do campaigns for the Swedish campaign organisation Skiftet. I'm really interested in equality between men and women and in making better conditions for the young generation (my generation). On my free time I love skiing, sailing and biking.
I'm a Forest Campaigner at Greenpeace Southeast Asia based in Indonesia. My work is focused mainly on the palm oil sector and in corporate outreach to protect the remaining forests in Indonesia. I started my career working in various NGOs and joined Greenpeace in 2013 to campaign for forests protection and what is left of these extraordinary ecosystems because I believe that without healthy, thriving forests, planet Earth cannot survive
I help run grassroots education charity EFA London where we provide free participatory English language classes for migrants in South London and take action with our students. I'm also involved with anti-austerity activism outside work and am developing a feminist SRE (sex and relationship education) project with a paediatrician from UCL. I'm drawn to quite a few different causes, so still trying to work out where I can best make a difference in the world!
I'm extremely concerned about the gross inequality that exists in society. I currently working with 38 Degrees as a Campaigns Intern. Outside of work I enjoy watching football, reading and writing poetry, cooking and listening to music.
I care about the NHS, one of the most civilised and civilising institutions of the age. I am currently busy defending it as best I can. I also enjoy being on my allotment, surrounded by nature, organically gardening.
I care about the basic human rights of LGBTI people and other minorities. I'm dedicated to campaigning a fair and just world for everybody and I'm interested in building alliances with other stakeholders in the struggle for justice and equality.
I have just joined the 38 Degrees team and look forward to campaigning against social injustice and countering damaging media narratives. I have previously been involved in the anti-austerity movement and have learnt a lot from working with refugees and detainees in various parts of the UK. Having grown up in Bradford, I am a dyed-in-the-wool northerner and in my spare time I love travelling, reading and developing a passion for bizarre musical sub-genres.
I am a 19 year old Law and Human Rights student. Human Rights issues are a passion of mine, but I also love reading, socialising and watching my favourite TV shows.
I am a civil engineering graduate, PhD student, dedicated to changing the world one campaign at a time. I love volunteering and I am passionate about mental health. In my spare time I enjoy writing poetry.
