Your Voice

About

We take your ideas for improving life on campus, in the Students’ Union, and in your local community, and bring them to life. No idea is too big or too small, and they can cover pretty much anything, from a new vegan line at Tommy's, to an SU wide campaign on maintenance fees. We'll guide you from start to finish, letting you take as much, or as little control over the campaign as you'd like.

So submit an idea using the button on the home page and then share it with your friends and other students. When an idea reaches a critical mass, we’ll begin working on making it happen! So get cracking and share your Bright Ideas today.

HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK

The Bright Ideas platform is super simple to use. All you have to do is think of something you’d like to see implemented, summarise it in a quick, attention grabbing title, and then write a brief description expanding on what it is you want to do.

Once your idea has been submitted, it will be live for two weeks. During that time, other students can up vote or down vote your idea, as well as comment on it. Once your idea reaches 30 interactions, it might qualify to become a Big Idea. More to come on that later. Otherwise, you’ll need another 20 votes to reach 50 interactions, at which point we’ll take action.

If you don’t make it to 50 interactions this time, don’t worry, you can resubmit in three months, or keep submitting new ideas! Even if you choose not to, we’ll contact the relevant people to see what can be done either way.

WHAT IS A BIG IDEA

Does your idea affect a large number of people? Does it go beyond one localised area? Could it be made into a larger campaign? If you answered yes to any of those questions and we think your idea fits the criteria, then we’ll mark it as a Big Idea. These ideas only need 20 interactions, and when they hit that figure, we’ll reach out and invite you into the SU to discuss how we could upscale your idea. From there we’ll work with you to deliver the outcomes of your idea, tackling the root of its issues.

Please note that in order to add a new idea you will need to login to the website via the button at the top of the page.
