Here you have two good buddies who had the wonderful idea of running for election to the Student Parliament.
After getting two mandates last election our main focus has been showcasing student volunteering whereof we prevailed that the student parliament shall focus on making a startup- scholarship for new student organizations supporting the right to run associations. We've also worked with enlightening the importance of an active environment and a democratic Student parliament.
Our vision is to give ownership over student politics to all the great and committed students that UiO has to offer, and that it should be the spirit of voluntariness that drives the Parliament’s activities. Voluntariness is after all the cornerstone of all student activities, not pomp and prestige. We think that it shouldn’t be necessary to run under a list in order to be active in student politics. That is not to say that the lists should be abolished—they serve their role in organizing ideas and values—but at least let the students participate as independent candidates! We need an executive committee bogged down by proforma, able to work efficiently and effectively towards better student welfare.
The Henke and Thom-list thinks that starting a project is something that should run on pure commitment and devotion. A vision of increased focus on voluntariness isn’t something exclusive to the Parliament, but to the daily student life itself.
Our list has grown and become more diverse than ever. We represent a list with 34 amazing candidates, all with different backgrounds and different opinions, but all equally fitted to sit in the student parliament. All of our candidates, if they were to be elected, is free to vote how they would like at the parliament
Lastly, we want to encourage all students to participate! If not in student politics, in an association or another form of student activity. University is already tough enough as it is, and we want everyone to set their mark on our fantastic university!
