I am sad Clubs day wasn’t able to happen this year. However in the wake of this I think its important we work in other ways to get the Students’ Association’s name and the collectives’ names out there.
I am working towards getting clearer transparency from the university about their investments. UTS prides itself on its sustainability. However, we need to ensure that their investment match this commitment to sustainability. Through correspondence with multiple staff members, by next Sustainability Steering Committee meeting there should a clearer understanding of UTS’ investment portfolio. If it is as I predict, there will be a significant portion with fossil fuels, I believe it is then important that UTS makes the stand and divest. I am optimistic about this but if the uni refuses to divest- the Students’ Association must act. Our university should not be financially supporting environmental collapse and the degradation of stolen Indigenous land. Always feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
