There are a range of organisations you can get involved with, from smaller, grassroots community groups to larger campaign groups associated with larger charities.
Campaigning isn't just about marching or direct action and breaking into power stations.
Most groups have a variety of aims, such as raising public awareness of issues through stalls and events, running campaigns on specific topics or promoting positive solutions to environmental problems.
There is a lot going on out there!
Groups are generally run by dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers who meet regularly and getting involved is a great way to meet like-minded people.
These are just a few of the campaigning groups active in the city.
