The National Union of Students (NUS) has launched a new project called I Am The Change to encourage and support students to campaign for positive change in the community 24/10/2012
Students can impact on anything from educational, community-based and environmental issues to personal development, health and wellbeing or careers and politics.
Last year the I Am The Change competition was won by Courtney Giles who wanted to save Epsom Phab, an inclusive club in South West London for physically disabled or able-bodied children, which faced closure by the council.
Epsom Phab volunteers received training from the NUS, and a budget to help them deliver their campaign to save the club. They secured an extra year in their current premises and will continue to use the skills they gained to fight for the club's long-term future.
Watch how Epsom Phab went about their campaign:
If you want to make a difference just like Courtney, be it local or national, then put your idea forward at NUS – I Am The Change.
