motions

The best way to influence the student union without having to personally engage in one or several of the union bodies is to submit motions to the representative assembly meetings. A motion is a document that contains the following information.
– Background: Why the motion is being written and what you want to change and why.
– Pleading: What the motion should change. For example a change to a paragraph or similar.
– Who supports the motion: A list of one or more names.

Please use our motion template when you write your motions.

The motion is then submitted to styrelsen@bthstudent.se before the motion stop which is 14 days before any regular representative assembly meeting.
