Activist Academy

Following on from an all student vote, Durham SU is hosting an activist academy around the topic of Homelessness in County Durham. We’ll be joined by a representative from DASH (Durham Action On Single Housing) who will tell us more about the scale of the issue regarding Homelessness in County Durham and how we can unite as students to help solve it. The event will be held at 12:00 on Wednesday 31 January.

The day aims to equip students with the skills, knowledge and confidence to tackle these issues with training sessions covering marketing, event planning, campaigning and influencing. We’ll also have a session towards the end where students can use the knowledge that they’ve acquired and think about the direction of campaigns to tackle the Homelessness in the region.
