- The list for more power in terms of sustainability at the RWTH -


Lecture hall occupations are a legitimate means!

- Student parliament shows solidarity with End Fossil Occupy -

The group End Fossil Occupy had occupied lecture halls at RWTH in winter 2022 and spring 2023. They draw attention to the climate catastrophe and underline the responsibility of the RWTH.

In the Student Parliament (StuPa), we have made a strong case for solidarity with End Fossil Occupy. A motion has now been passed by a majority! "The student parliament recognizes lecture hall occupations as a legitimate means and component of democratic will formation. The AStA is allowed to inform about End Fossil Occupy and their activities."

It also supports the demands of End Fossil Occupy:
"Companies such as Shell, which generate their main profits from fossil energies or make most of their investments in fossil energies....
...should be excluded from the Career Days and other promotional events of companies at RWTH.
...shall not fund any research projects on climate crisis, environment and energy at RWTH."

The original position paper on:
A detailed explanation on Justification to the motion for solidarity with End Fossil Occupy
(Unfortunately both only in German available)

A new AStA is formed!

It's getting exciting again

Who will decide the election for the 70th Student Parliament in 2022?

We are entering a new round and have a lot of ideas how to make the RWTH more just, diverse and green. More about that in the coming weeks.

To ensure that all RWTH students can hear about our ideas and use their vote, we've come up with a few things. But nothing works without money. Since we are politically independent, we are not funded by any "mother party". If you know people who have a few euros to spare for a good cause, please let them know about our crowdfunding campaign:

StuPa-Begriffe erklärt

What do the terms "ordinary" and "deputy member of the student parliament (MdSP)" actually mean? An ordinary MdSP is entitled to vote during the parliamentary sessions. However, he/she can also give his/her voting card to an alternate MdSP.

And how does one become an ordinary MdSP? In the StuPa election, the 41 seats of the parliament are divided among the different lists according to the percentage of votes achieved. A list can get one or more seats in the StuPa. Our list was able to get 3 seats this year with 7.08% of the votes. Since we have more than 3 people on our list, only a part of us can be "regular MdSP".

On the ballot paper, however, only persons can be elected, no lists. One has quasi only a first vote (as a comparison to the Bundestag election). The persons who got the most votes from our list will be "ordinary MdSP". All other candidates, who received at least one vote, become deputy MdSP. Under "Members "you can find out which of us is a full member and which is an alternate member.
