Change the world around you

What is a campaign?

When we talk about campaigning what do we mean? Well, a campaign is something that aims to create a change. 

As students campaigning is a great way for you to have your voice heard and to make a real difference for something that you care about. A campaign should create impactful, lasting change for people or a cause on a local, national or global level. Whatever it is that you want to change, Imperial College Union is here to support you. 

We can help you campaign and fight for change in the world around you.  We support a wide range of campaigns, led by students, Officer Trustees, and our eight Liberation & Community Officers.

Liberation & Community Zones

Do you want to campaign on environmental issues? Maybe you are passionate about LGBT rights, or interfaith dialogue? Or do you want to highlight and solve gender inequalities or the problems international students can face? 

Our Liberation & Community Officers represent students within these eight areas and run various campaigns throughout the year. If the issue you want to campaign on falls into one or more of our liberation zones then why not get in touch with the Officers to find out how you can work together? 

Our eight Liberation & Community Officers:
  • Black & Minority Ethnic Officer
  • Gender Equality Officer
  • LGBT+ Officer
  • Disabilities Officer
  • Interfaith Officer
  • International Officer
  • Mental Health Officer
  • Ethics & the Environment Officer
