My UGM Report - We're coming back (slowly)!

Hey hey, this month has probably been the most exciting times during the last year because I can finally see the light at end of the tunnel of lockdown. I’ve been starting to help plan in-person events and seeing the return of sport has been great! So, here’s a few updates from me: 

General Updates 

Graduation and Welcome 2021 
Unfortunately, the university have still yet to make an official statement on what is happening to graduation this year. I am still pushing for an update from the university by making sure that it is on the agenda of every meeting. 

I’ve been in discussions with the SU to take next steps in planning Welcome 2021. These meetings have started much earlier than ‘normal’ so that we can deliver a great Welcome, whatever the circumstances that the country is in when we hit September.  

Return of Sport 2.0 
Sport has finally made a comeback! During the last two weeks clubs have begun to start outdoor training again. Indoor training should *hopefully* resume on 17th May. Information on the sport roadmap and FAQs were given to clubs at the AU council meeting can be found here. Thanks to all the clubs that have been patient and helpful writing the risk assessments. 

NUS Liberation Conference 
Between 23rd-25th March, I attended the 3-day NUS Liberation Conference. NUS Liberation Conference brings together Black*, Disabled, LGBT+, Trans and Women Students together to build communities of activists and plan NUS campaigning work. This year, it was attended by the myself, Activities and Community Officer, Disabled Students’ Officer, Gender Equality Officer, LGBTQ+ Students’ Officer and BAME Students’ Officer. We are pleased to have contributed to passing the following NUS policy discussions which can be found here: 

-Singular Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy 
-Make Inclusive and Accessible Environments Standard
-Period Poverty 
-Pronouns on Microsoft Teams 

Manifesto Updates 

Carbon Emissions 
I have now finally completed all the calculations for all menu items in the Squirrel (really didn’t think it would take this long…). The next step is to come up with a design of how it will appear on the menu.
