Join us for Parly to the People *location change*

This Friday, Speaker Trevor Mallard and MPs are bringing Parliament to UC. Students are encouraged to come along for a BBQ and a chat.

The travelling non-partisan event was launched in South Auckland at the end of last year, and aims to encourage student engagement. They’re out to prove that you don’t need to live in Wellington to get involved with Parliament – there are loads of ways to have your say.

Friday’s event will be hosted by the UC Pols club, a non-partisan political group here on campus. They’ll be joined by Mr Speaker and MPs David Carter, David Seymour, Matt Doocey and Jan Logie.
If you’re keen for a chat and a bite to eat, stop by Parly to the People in the Undercroft this Friday from 1.00pm to 2.30pm.

See you there!

  • When: Friday 15 March, 1.00pm–2.30pm
  • Where: the Undercroft.
