I support Lijst Calimero, because they are a party that I trust to represent my interests as a student. During this academic year, I’ve been in contact with the candidate faction of the university council because of my role as an ESN blog journalist. This showed me a lot about what Calimero does for the students. It is the party that delivers a better University and I know they have in-depth knowledge and act with the interests of students in mind.
Lijst Calimero stays in touch with a lot of organisations in Groningen and therefore knows what matters to students. I always had good conversations with them about youth employment and internship opportunities. They ask for my views and are taking into account what matters to me. In the past year Calimero achieved a lot when it comes to the developments on the topic of mental wellbeing of students and small-scale education. These are subjects that matter to me as a student. More student psychologists have been hired, a reflection room has been created in the University library and the second edition of the Wellbeing week has taken place. A new minor in Rhetorics has been developed and 5 million euros are spent additionally to improve the student-staff ratio.
Calimero delivers a better UG, therefore, vote Lijst Calimero.
