GrassrootsAbout Us

Grassroots, founded in 2013, is the environmental club at John Cabot University. The name itself reflects both our connection to the Earth, as well as our ground-up approach to tackling environmental issues. We consider ourselves to be imbued with a special sense of community. We feel it is our individual responsibility to  promote the knowledge and respect of the environment as the very foundation of our collective future. It is important that we respect life on Earth and our social and economic wellbeing as a whole. The change begins with us and with everyone who decides to stand up and change the world for the better, one person and one act at a time. Our motto is  “Be the Change.” 

If our message and sense of community resonates with you, we invite you to join us! Remember, it all begins with you. Let's "Be the Change", for there is no planet B.
