ESU Plan of Work 2011: More Money for Our Education
European Students' Union (NJ1)
Following signals across Europe the European Students' Union (ESU) will focus its next working year on defending education as a public good, and a public responsibility. Since the very start of the new ESU team in July 2010 the ESU elected representatives have been working to develop a new political vision for the next ESU working year, that both entails these three priorities and a lot of more activities for the next year. The Plan of Work 2011 (POW2011) is the result of a thorough consultation of the elected representatives, staff and ESU's member unions. This Plan of Work has been drafted in the surrounding of the new task division structure (referred to as the New Deal), which aims at topic responsibility per elected representative rather than committee responsibility for the work planned. ESU members are confident that the New Deal will contribute even more to the progression in this Plan of Work and to the expansion of ESU's capacity, both organisational and intellectual. The Board will have a more transparent overview of which elected representative works in every topic area and how she or he progresses. the POW2011 has a new and more concise structure that only entails the political priorities for the next year, the general political alliances ESU plans to maintain or strengthen and the background and processes under which they function instead of the political priorities/dossier/activities division they've known until last year. This new approach takes out the operational detail and turns this document into a manifesto ESU members can use for external representation and advocacy work. Another addition to this year's Plan of Work is the annex 1: Workload estimates, which is an attempt to give the Board more insight in the workload of the elected representatives, and the reason of our sometimes maybe limited ambitions.
