Yep, it really is that simple. We want you to put through any ideas you have that could make being at LSBU even better. From the tiny things that could make things a bit easier, to the BIG ideas that could transform the whole University. There are no real limits as to what this could be, it’s YOUR idea. Good luck!

Post your idea. Make it awesome and clear. Once you post it, the SU will review it before it can go live. If we reject your post we’ll let you know why* so you can make any changes to it and re-post it. Once it’s been approved it will be live for 2 weeks for people to vote and comment on.

Tips

  • Give it a catchy title to make sure people are drawn to it
  • Write clearly what your idea is in the description, too short or confusing and people won’t get it!
*posts will be rejected it they contain swear words, hate speech or deemed inappropriate for this page.

Students will have 2 weeks to vote “up” or vote “down” the idea, as well as add comments and discuss it. Your idea (and others) will be shared on the SU’s front page, as well as on our social media - so you can share it too. The more votes and comments an idea gets the higher up the page it will be.

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 SU 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 “SU should post more social media stuff in the evening” - we can just go and do that!

Union Council will vote on whether to “accept” or “reject” the idea. If they “accept” it, an Officer or staff member will be given the task of making that idea into a reality. Depending on what the idea is, you could also be involved in making it come true too. Any successful “ideas” will be shared across the SU’s communication streams and you’ll get to see your idea turn from words to something real.

If Union Council “rejects” the idea we’ll let you know why so that you can take that on board and either accept it, or re-submit an updated version of the idea through the BIG Ideas system again.

    Free Advertising & Promotion for Student Freelancers & Start-Ups

    Locked
    • Other
    For students working freelance or starting a new business, LSBSU should offer support in the way of free advertising & free stalls at Student Union events. It costs them nothing to allow students to place posters & flyers around campus, but instead students are asked to sign a service level agreement & pay advertising rates as an external business. Having looked at the LSBSU media pack, this could cost hundreds of pounds, which disadvantaged students like myself, simply do not have. Surely LSBSU should waive these fees for students who are working to get their businesses off the ground?
