As NUS enters its 98th year we’ve clarified a new purpose: deliver focused high-impact campaigns that win for students.
This year’s Liberation Conference will be a high-energy, impactful campaigning space - moving away from reacting to the symptoms, and going after the root causes instead.
Our Liberation Conference will bring together Black*, Disabled, LGBT+, Trans and Women Students together to build communities of activists and plan our campaigning work. We’ll organise around and plan the next steps for our #DecoloniseEducation
campaign and our fight for liberated trans healthcare and GRA reform. We will also explore new ideas to be vocal and visible on, such as the Disabled Students’ Allowance.
The conference will take place online.
As a conference attendee you can expect:
1. Spaces where you can build your networks and connections.
2. Meaningful involvement in shaping the next steps of our campaigns
3. Chances to grow your own campaigning skills to take action.
It doesn’t end with conference either. We are building communities of activists to continue to be actively involved in our campaigns. Before, during, and after conference, we’ll also be working together to shape what NUS will be vocal and visible on. These sessions will be part of conversations to continue to shape, grow and develop the campaigning priorities for our movement in the future.
In addition, we’ll be electing Liberation Campaigns and Scrutiny Committee members at conference.
