If we are serious about preventing catastrophic warming, we need to stop Barclays funding any new coal mines, drill any new fracking sites or build any more pipelines. Not a single one. Take action to tell them we’re done expanding the fossil fuel frontier.
We are a student movement fighting the advance of the 'hostile environment' onto our campuses and producing a collective vision of the truly public university. We campaign to push back the surveillance and policing of migrant students and workers, and counter-act the financial and administrative barriers that undercut migrants' access to education.
Would you like to screen a documentary during Go Green Week 2020? We've put together these guided discussion prompts for The E-Waste Tragedy (2014). Every year, up to 50 million tons of electronic waste – computers, television sets, mobile phones, household appliances – are discarded in the developed world. 75% of this waste disappears from the legal recycling circuits, with much of it being shipped illegally to India, China or Africa. Let us know if you'd like further support!
As part of Go Green Week 2020 - End Climate Co2onialism, we're encouraging students to screen the documentary Death By Design (2016). In an investigation that spans the globe, filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs. Please feel free to use the attached guided discussion prompts, and get in touch if you would like extra support!
Note: Different Students' Unions will have different ways of structuring their motions. Check with somebody in your own Union to make sure this is the right format. Call us on 01865 403225 to discuss an alternative.
