Join The Working Group!
Currently, the main way to get involved with SEASALT is to join the working group whose aim is to set up SEASALT Housing Co-operative. We meet every 2 weeks to discuss project updates and assign tasks depending on members’ capacity. We have additional meetings every 2 weeks with our partner organisation – BHCLT.
SEASALT is inviting new student members for the 2020-21 academic year to join the working group.
We hope to encourage students who would like to live in the co-op to join our working group and help us set up SEASALT.
