SDM (Studenti Demokristjani Maltin) have launched a campaign called Leave Your Mark, which they hope will shed light on the positive aspects of student activism.
Over 40 student organisations, including Pulse and KSU, will be collaborating with SDM on the campaign which was launched this week in the form of a short introductory video. The organisation is planning to carry out student feedback exercises, amongst other campus events, to analyse the culture of student activism within the University of Malta.
Student representatives from the different student organisations will be working with SDM throughout the whole process, to make sure that the campaign is translated into a common mindset all over campus. Essentially, it is an opportunity for students from diverse areas and organisations to come together for a common goal; to promote student activism and its benefits for the student body and for society in general.
In the introductory video, SDM President Gabriel Micallef states that the aim of Leave Your Mark will be to increase public interest in the hard work performed by student organisations, as well as bringing about a stronger sense of community on campus.
He continues to emphasise that not only students actively involved in organisations are welcome to participate and share their opinions: “As student organisations, we should come together to create one vision for a better University”.
The organisations who will be collaborating with SDM on this campaign are: MHSA, MMSA, Betapsi, MPSA, TDM2000, AIESEC, ASA, GhMU, GhST, HoASA, MKSU, MUHS, ALLT, ASCS, CommA, TSA, SIERA, ESO, GUG, ICTSA, JEF, ELSA, GhSL, CSA, UoM Futsal, MUSC, UoM Racing, Y4TE, ESA, UoM Rowing, GEM, We Are, Hybrid, LGBTI+ Gozo, S-Cubed, UESA, SACES, Insite, The Third Eye, KNZ, Pulse and KSU.
