WHAT IS A CAMPAIGN?

  • A campaign starts with one or more students, or an already affiliated group, having an idea or common cause that they are passionate about.
  • These ideas are then turned into your campaign aims and objectives, which will help you to plan the types of events and activities you run. 
  • Whether this is influencing, advocating or amyplfying voices, campaigning is for all students and anyone can join or run a campaign of their own!
