While physical distancing is less than ideal, it’s what’s best for our community at the moment and we can still come together online to support one another and keep taking action together. There are plenty of ways that we can all stay connected and keep campaigning for solutions to our education issues – and we want to hear from you.
To help us shape our next steps, please take a few minutes to share your thoughts in our working together survey. We will read everyone’s feedback on how you want to connect with our community at this time, use it to inform our plans, and report back to you. There is so much creativity, wisdom and experience across our community, and we thank you for sharing yours with us.
At UMSU, we’re working hard behind the scenes to develop a variety of events and activities online in which you can continue to connect with each other and make friends within your student community from the comfort of your home. Find out more here.
Everyone knows that music soothes the soul, and there has never been a greater need for that than now! Check out online festivals like Isol-Aid or Drive in Gigs, and remember to support the industry through buying merchandise and music online. Also check out shenanigans planned for this year's Record Store Day. Musicians need our support more than ever!
