After meeting Preston Manning of the Manning Foundation I was invited back to give a student election workshop to the twenty young members who has just started their internship programs.
We covered policy, fundraising, campaigning, advocacy and efficient delivery of student services.
The group told me shocking stories of waste and mismanagement from the Socialist Left. I was able to sympathise and share similar stories.
By the end, everyone had an appreciation for grass roots activism and the basic tools necessary to take up the fight to make local changes at their Universities.
