Your Ideas

Any student can submit an Idea to change the Union, University or City of Leeds. All submitted ideas go to a forum meeting to be decided on. If the student panel can't reach 75% consensus either way, a campus-wide vote will decide.

It all starts with an idea...

An idea can come from anywhere. Just look around and ask what would make things better for you, other students, or everyone in Leeds.

Once you have the idea, we can help you put it into practice

Your idea will go to one of three forums

The Better Union Forum

The idea passes!

If at least 75% of the panel are in favour of your idea, it will be accepted. This means it will become Union policy to work on your idea.

The idea is contentious

If there isn't a strong consensus either way, your idea will be considered contentious and we'll ask every student to have their say on it through a campus-wide vote.

The idea fails

If at least 75% of the panel are against your idea, it will be rejected. This means it won't become Union policy to work on your idea.

Sorry but your Idea has not passed

There are still some options available to you.

If you feel this Idea really needs to go ahead then you can request a petition from the Union. If enough people sign it then the idea will go to a campus wide vote. Otherwise you can wait a year and submit your Idea again.
