What the Idea is about:
LUU should encourage students to opt into running more sustainable election campaigns by ensuring that they are paper-free. This would be a written agreement which would bind the candidates to a paper-free commitment or pledge.
Why have you proposed it?
Every year, Leadership Race candidates use vast quantities of paper in their election campaigns. This can be an ineffective way of campaigning, as well as causing unnecessary harm to the environment. In an age of social media, this idea challenges the use of paper and printed content, and encourages more creative, innovative and sustainable ways of campaigning, with the obvious benefit of a dramatic reduction in environmentally damaging paper use.
