Sustainability

After 2 years of no events and the great sustainable success of May Ball 2019, May Ball 2022 hopes to be more sustainable than ever. Sustainability in the Ball will be addressed in key areas such as energy usage, material waste, transportation, food and drink and overall event emissions. This committee position aligns with a student-driven, university-wide drive to make all May Week events more environmentally conscious. To commit ourselves to minimising the footprint of our event as much as possible, we have taken a Sustainability Pledge and are actively participating in an accreditation scheme set up by the sustainability consultancy Sustain-a-Ball to assess the sustainability of our event through an independent audit.

Accessibility

We want to make Pembroke May Ball 2022 accessible and welcoming to everyone and are proud to be a member of the Cambridge SU Disabled Student's Campaign's Access-a-Ball scheme.

You can find our detailed access statements (including both what we can and cannot provide) here.

For any queries about the accessibility (including any unanticipated or specific needs) of our May Ball, please contact our Accessibility Officer. For any queries about the accessibility of this website, please contact our Technical Officer.

Cambridge is one of the most unequal cities in the United Kingdom, and as such, we have chosen to support the Cambridge Student Community Action to help combat this wealth disparity.

Some of these schemes include homework and library helpers, and providing kids clubs for underprivileged children.

Macmillan Cancer Support logo

Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity that provides support to people impacted by cancer. The charity provides physical, emotional and financial support.

Founded by Youth Directors, Reserva is an entirely youth-funded charity that helps protects nature reserves around the world. The charity focusses on the site Ecuador's Choco cloud forest - which is one of the most biodiverse areas on Earth and homes some of the world's most endangered species.
