For an idea to make it from the BIG Ideas page to Union Council, which made up of your elected full time and part time officers, it must receive a score of +20. This means that there are 20 more “up” votes than “down” votes. (For example 30 upvotes vs 3 downvotes = +27) Once an idea has reached a score of +20 it will automatically be discussed at Union Council to see if the Students' Union can make the idea a reality.
However, Union Council members also have the chance to pick any idea from the BIG Ideas page that they think should be discussed, this is to make sure that as many of YOUR ideas as possible get talked about and have the chance to happen.
Some of your ideas can also be actioned by the Students’ Union itself, without Union Council, as they might be an easy fix... for example the “Students' Union should post more social media stuff in the evening” - we can just go and do that!
