Advocacy

The lobbying of municipalities is done together

Student unions at the metropolitan area lobby the municipalities together. The most important goals for our policies is to add the amount of student apartments, improve the condition of transportation on campus areas and improve the services students use every day. These come to concrete actions through our joint World Student Capital -network that is created by student unions from UAS’ ¬†and universities.

Supporting the students in higher education

Each student union does its’ lobbying inside their own educational institutions. The student unions help individual students and influence the decisions and policies that reach through the entire educational institution. This way we can for example influence the quality of education, the institution’s organisational structures and feedback practises. Channels and practises vary between institutions and student unions.

The wellbeing of a student

In addition to the educational matters we do lobbying for students’ wellbeing. Student unions contribute to the students’ wellbeing and current situation concerning for example equity and equality, living and livelihood.

The channels for students’ advocacy

Students are being offered countless ways to advocate their own educational institution, student union and their educational environment. These ways include running for the student parliament in your student union, becoming a tutor or a student representative in your institutions organisational structures. In these structures you can be a part of making changes, gaining valuable experience and great experiences. If you want to know more about different ways and channels of advocacy, you can ask your student union.
