Ethical Network
The Ethical Network is a community of around 60 student societies working on social and environmental issues, campaigning, fundraising, volunteering and promoting engagement with the challenges in which they are involved.

History
Cambridge Hub is the second oldest Hub. The first, Oxford Hub, was founded in 2007 by a group of students who felt the need for better coordination between student charitable groups. The vision was of a network that would connect students working across different causes so they could share insight, knowledge, and experience, thereby making all groups more effective. As more and more groups expressed interest in becoming involved, it became evident that there were many other ways in which student charitable groups could be having a bigger impact.
The success of the original Hub, Oxford Hub, in 2007 led to the creation of Student Hubs, a national charity, including Cambridge Hub in 2008.
Today Cambridge Hub reaches over 3,000 students every week with information about opportunities to get involved, provides weekly training sessions and speaker events, runs several conferences per year and offers support to its Ethical Network groups.
In 2014-15, Cambridge Hub was part of a cohort of brilliant social ventures at Social Incubator East. Read more about our journey here.
