Student’s wellbeing is a high priority for us. To achieve that goal we at Venstrealliansen want UiB to offer a free curriculum, this is not a bearable expense for students in an already difficult economic situation. To compete in the job market one needs experience, but where will one get this? The students demand more internship slots. The privately owned housing market exploits already vulnerable students, that’s why we need to strengthen the student housing offers. The housing needs to be of better quality, be close to the city center and the rent must go down. Students need a space to live in, not just be housed
Climate politics are also red politics. UiB must take climate and environment seriously, and make sure students and employees will be able to make more sustainable choices. UiB has signed a treaty to become climate neutral by 2030. Us at Venstrealliansen will make sure UiB follows this treaty. We want the vegetarian offers to be better, and we want a system to promote green alternatives.
representation has a symbol effect. It is important to have role models one can relate to, so that one can believe in oneself. That is why we want to decolonize the curriculum, and prioritize female authors. In the Autumn of 2022, the government cut students outside the EU’s opportunities to study at UiB. By weakening the “free education principle”, the diversity weakens. UiB must work to recruit employees and students of differing cultural-, and socioeconomic background, gender, sexuality and function.
If you want a green, feminist and just everyday life for students, vote Venstrealliansen.
