Students will vote on a motion to make 100 per cent of Bristol’s Student Union's partnerships plant-based by 2025.
The vote will take place at the Annual Member’s Meeting, which is scheduled for Monday 13th February from 4-7 PM.
The motion has been tabled by Bristol VegSoc, who have argued that the legislation will be a key step towards achieving the SU’s Sustainability goals.
The motion calls for ‘on-campus vending machines and giveaways to be 50 per cent plant-based by the next academic year and 100 per cent plant-based by 2025.’ It also demands that ‘all union-catered events’ must offer 100 per cent plant based foods by 2025.’
The second section of the motion calls upon the SU to endorse the ‘Plant Based Universities Campaign’. As part of this, the SU would need to ‘lobby internally for university-wide 100 per cent plant-based, and affordable food at UoB’
The AMM is the SU’s largest student democratic event. Individuals can vote on motions which SU officers then have to enact for the next three years.
Other motions up for debate at this year’s AMM include one to establish a ‘new and improved prayer room for muslims on campus’ and ‘supporting Trans and Non-Binary Students & Campaigning for Gender Justice’.
The AMM will have taken place on Monday 13th February.
