​The Voice Zone has created the E-Petitions process so that students have an easy way of letting the Union know their ideas of things they would like to see change.  You can log your idea in the list below (you must be logged into the website), and then your fellow students will be able to vote for your idea by pressing the 'like'.  If your idea receives 50 or more 'likes', it will automatically be taken forward to the Union's Executive for debate at their next meeting.  Any students can attend Exec, and you can speak about your idea and see whether its taken forward. 

You can also submit ideas directly to Exec by writing a policy motion, but using the process below will give you an idea of how popular your plan might be with your fellow students.  You can find out more about Exec and when it meets, here.
