Hi, my name is martin clayton and i am a third year business management student at the University of Brighton. i am also the elected vice president of our student union and my particular focus is on civic engagement.
Why do i want to be involved in this opportunity?
I want to be involved in this opportunity as i have a real passion and desire to help my local communities and see this as an invaluable opportunity to learn and further develop my own understanding of how other institutions across the world conduct their own practices and see how i can take those lessons back to Brighton.
What inspires me about the global civic engagement movement?
The main inspiration about the civic engagement movement that occUrs pn an international level is knowing that people the world over are just as committed, passionate and engaged to make a difference. There are key note speeches from some of theist powerful people in the world taking place at this conference and to be able to learn and debate with such individuals is a real privilege.
I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you.
