Greater Manchester & District CND are excited to launch a new programme specifically for students in Manchester and Salford.
With the city’s long-standing history of anti-nuclear activism and a student population that are deeply committed to campaigning for incredible causes, we have created a new type of group aimed at facilitating students with the information and tools they need to get on board with our push for global peace.
Our student network will come in the form of Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament / Peace (CNDP) groups in The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, and The University of Salford.
By joining or creating a CNDP group, you can work with other likeminded students and campaign on issues that you are passionate about. While no previous campaigning experience is necessary, the perfect CNDP group would be made up of committed, motivated, and engaged students who are willing to learn about the issues that surround nuclear proliferation and peace.
Similar groups have made tremendous headway in lobbying universities and MPs in the past, and we believe your CNDP will be no different.
We have created a startup toolkit (here) that can provide new students groups with background information on their institutions and help them get their campaigns off the ground. Our team of campaigners and staff members in Manchester will also be on hand to offer expertise and guide groups in their infancy.
You can check out our startup toolkit here and if you feel that this programme could be for you, you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the GMDCND office at Bridge 5 Mill (here)
NB. CNDP groups are part of the wider Youth & Student CND network, which has campus groups at Stirling, SOAS, Goldsmiths, Nottingham, York and Cambridge.
Youth & Student CND campaign, organise talks and take lots of volunteers to Glastonbury and Bestival to spread the word.
