'The Ireland I would like to see' is an incredible new campaign launched by UCC

This is such a brilliant campaign.

UCC in partnership with UCCSU has launched a joint social media campaign for the general election 2020.

The 'Ireland I would like to see' campaign gives a voice to UCC students on the issues they would like to see addressed by a future government.

From now until the election, you can follow the University Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to watch its students speak about issues, from higher education to mental health.

Speaking about this brilliant campaign, Ben Dunlea, President of the UCC Student Union, said:

"We are hearing a lot from politicians in this election. These politicians will make decisions that impact on our generation, so it is brilliant to work together with UCC to give voice to those issues that will impact us."

I strongly suggest you have a look at the videos - these students are inspiring us all.
