From trial changes in the uniform to cultural awareness workshops, all of our members have been busy trying to make the most out of these last couple of months. However, none of this could have been possible without the support from other committed students and members of the staff body. On behalf of the Student Council, I wish to formally thank you all for your efforts this term.
Moving forward, the real focus of our collective efforts needs to be on the climate crisis.
This holiday, we are inviting you to join us in our ‘Dover’s Sustainable Summer’ campaign (we realise it’s not summer everywhere but ‘sustainable winter’ doesn’t exactly have the same ring to it…). As we embark on a two-month break, there are many vital steps we can all be taking to make it an impactful one.
We encourage everyone to take a pledge of action toward combatting the climate crisis. Whilst this campaign will only last for the holiday period, we hope it’ll inspire you to commit to more long term action once the holidays end.
This is your chance to tell your story and use your position for good. We've all been told what to do, now all that is left is to actually ‘walk the walk’.
Whether it be going vegetarian, only buying second-hand or going plastic-free, your actions matter. If we can all do our part (and also pester the big corporations who are causing the crisis whilst we're at it), we have the power to make real change in this world - a change that'll help us rebuild an environment for our future.
Follow @doverstuco on Instagram and #itsnotdOVERyet to join our campaign. Tag us on social media and tell us what you’ll be pledging this holiday. Our campaign materials can also be found below.
Summer is a time for possibility and we are so excited to see what you’ll do with it…
All the best with your endeavours and safe travels to all those going abroad.
