Submit New Idea

Welcome to the ideas platform. This is a place where you can submit an idea for change as well as voting and commenting on other students ideas. The more votes and comments a post gets the more likely it’ll be taken to the SUBU Summit or Student Member’ meeting where students will vote whether to adopt the idea as Union Policy. 



Your ideas can be about anything, from big structural changes to small amendments. They can call for change from within SUBU, BU or the wider community.  Your ideas can be action based such as asking the Union to lobby the university on a specific issue or ideological such as supporting a specific group. Prior to every meeting of the SUBU Summit and Student Members' meeting the SUBU Summit Chair goes through all your ideas and decides which ones should be developed into motions and taken to the meetings. Motions are discussed and debated and a final vote is then taken. If approved these motions then become Union Policy. You can find out more about Union Policy, as well as viewing the current list of live policies here.


When submitting your idea be sure to include the following information in the description:

1. What you think the problem is- this should include background information including facts, figures and research

2. What you think the solution is- this is the large scale changes that need to happen and the specific steps that you think need to be taken 

3. Which Full-Time Officer you think should lead on it

4. What other student groups you think should be involved in this work



Once you have submitted your idea one of the team will be in touch to invite you in to discuss your ideas!

    BU timetables making them editable for organising time

      1. What you think the problem is Your Answer: That you cannot add sml and your own entries to organise your time 2. What you think the solution is Your Answer: The solution would be that students were able to edit them so it was treated more like a calendar this would mean that you could put in times to organise when to do SMLs and other work this could help students plan out times for sml times for assignments and revision as well as breaks to ensure a good school free time balance 3. What ideas you have for implementation Your Answer: The student wouldn't be able to change what's already there but be able to add extra boxes to be able to organise when they will do certain tasks and assignments. 4. Which Full-Time Officer you think should lead on it Your Answer: I think the vice president and president education should lead on it 5. What other student groups you think should be involved in this work? Your Answer: This would be beneficial for all BU students not only Child and Young People nurses and should be made available to all, even lecturers who can use this to organise their timings around lectures

    12:22am on 23 Nov 20 The timetable should just be on the 365 calendar with everything else. It's well made and easy to view on the phone. Reminders for lessons and the zoom link directly on the event to save time finding it on BrightSpace. Would be interested to know why this isn't the way it is already.
