Poverty isn't inevitable. It's just plain wrong...
That's why LUU Oxfam Society, a friendly student led campaign group, focuses on raising awareness of global issues through creative campaigning. This can be anything from flash mobs and media stunts to talks, crafts and socials.
We meet every Monday at 5-6pm in the Baines Wing, Room for 2015/16 TBC

Campaigning against Land Grabs outside Parliament
The global food system is broken. GROW outlines the injustice and problems concerning this system and how we as individuals in the UK can take steps forward to tackle it. By pressing governments and companies to reform bad policies and by adapting the way in which we eat, positive change can be brought about.

Why not watch Bill Nighy in 'The Banker'
Focuses on women who have died during pregnancy and childbirth within Ghana, the majority of which could have been easily prevented. The profile of this problem needs to be raised through awareness actions as well as pressing the UK government to keep to its aid commitments ensuring a safe experience for mother and baby.
