What do Labour’s plans to abolish tuition fees mean for universities? Does the Liberal Democrats’ pledge to hold a second Brexit referendum interest you? How about the Conservatives’ plans for social care?
Join us for Be the Change 2 on Friday 26 May 10.15am - 4pm, outside Leicester Castle, when we’ll continue to actively promote tolerance, diversity and understanding through discussion.
This event is a follow-up to the Be the Change 24-hour event held on campus earlier this month.
Food and drink will be available throughout three different sessions which will be led by DMU academic experts, focusing on the manifestos of the Lib Dems (10.05am-12 noon), Labour (12 noon-2pm) and the Conservatives (2-4pm).
All students and staff are very welcome to attend at any point during the day. You can join the conversation, ask questions or simply listen in. The talks will be followed by an outdoor reception at 4pm, weather permitting, to lead into the Bank Holiday weekend.
The event will also see the launch of the DMU Manifesto, which contains ideas put forward during the first Be the Change event, when students, staff, guests and the public discussed Brexit, fake news, the NHS, education, the environment and climate change, housing, the arts, diversity and other key concerns.
Named after the celebrated quote attributed to Gandhi, ‘You must be the change that you want to see in the world,’ DMU’s Be the Change events are part of the university’s drive to encourage students to vote.
