University of Leicester involved with Leicester Local Democracy Week on 15 October

Our Students’ Union is doing its part in Leicester Local Democracy Week by encouraging everyone to be active citizens and engage in the discussion about issues to do with Leicester.

The soapbox event ‘Your Voice. Your Platform’ gives an opportunity to stand up and speak your mind on topical subjects.

Subjects discussed will be:

  1. Should Leicester have an elected mayor?
  2. Do students recycle enough?
  3. Are students nuisance neighbours?

The event is taking place on Friday 15 October at 2pm in ‘The Square’, Percy Gee building.

Leicester Local Democracy Week is marked this week by a programme of community events open to anyone and taking place in different venues throughout the city with debates on various topics.
