The next General Election is a once in a generation opportunity to change our lives as students. Right now, there’s not much being offered to us by the political parties: so we’re building our own Manifesto for our Future – and NUS is informing it by hundreds of Big Conversation events happening across the UK!
We need you to have your say whether it be online or in person; we'll submit your ideas and feedback which will directly shape the Manifesto! We want to hear from students on what would improve their lives and make them motivated to vote as well as set the direction on what education should look like for the students of the future. Too often we feel disenfranchised, that nothing will change, or that no one will listen to us.
Building a strong Manifesto for our Future, alongside running Turn Up - the biggest student voter registration drive in history - will make it impossible to ignore the voice of students at the coming General Election. We will make sure students are heard by all UK governments.
Can't make ours? Run your own Big Conversation! If our dates don't suit why not host your own Big Conversation on campus-we've developed a full toolkit on how to the run the event as well as offering train the trainer sessions for anyone wanting to know more about how to gather their students opinions.
