Hi! I’m Amelia, your currently elected Welfare & Liberation Officer. I have been an active member of the student community both as an undergraduate and postgraduate. Having represented Durham at liberation conferences, I know that NUS Conference is the only place where you can lobby policy nationally which influences every Durham student’s experience. I believe NUS should be working on the issues that you care about, and if elected I will use my position to write policy and vote to:
As a sabbatical officer, it is frustrating that so many of the issues Durham students face, are national problems. From the cost of our education to the mental health crisis, climate change and hate crime – we urgently need an overwhelming and national voice in order to pressure our University and make the changes we need on the ground. Everyday. For every Durham student.
Vote David, Jess & Amelia.
