For more information check out www.warwicksu.com/elections. This fortnight also sees the annual Real Ale Festival which is an incredible event that you really don’t want to miss.

news in brief warwick economics summit

week 6

Warwick Economics Summit is one of the largest student-run academic conferences of its kind in Europe, marked by stimulating talks, engaging debates and educational workshops touching on a diverse array of global issues, including politics, psychology and development. Over the past ten years, it has evolved in form and stature into a truly international forum where talented students from universities across the world listen to some of the most internationally-revered and inspirational speakers. Tickets for this year’s summit sold out in record time - if you’re one of the lucky ones who managed to bag one, head over to their website (www.warwickeconomicssummit.com/2012) for full details of this year’s schedule. We look forward to seeing you there!

kenyan orphan project fundraiser monday week 6 The Kenyan Orphanage Project will be selling all manner of Valentine’s goodies including cakes, cards and roses in the Atrium on 13th February ready for delivery on the 14th! All proceeds go directly to the charity.

There are also loads of other great society events going on, including WSC’s AllNighter, Battle of the Bands Heats 3 & 4 and the Vietnamese Cultural Night.

Finally, a quick reminder that just because we’re halfway through the year, it doesn’t mean you can’t get involved or get your voice heard – your Sabbs are always here for you if you fancy a moan or a chat!

Aside from being a cultural event, Warwick Malaysia Night is the culmination of many months of hard work, ambition, belief and excitement by more than 100 of our members, adding up to one of the most unforgettable displays of Malaysian culture in the UK. Get your tickets via Warwick Arts Centre or the booths around campus to be in with a chance of winning a trip to Portugal!

Have a great fortnight, Izzy John WELFARE OFFICER

real ale festival 2012

Warwick University Real Ale Society Presents

THE 33RD ANNUAL

REAL ALE FESTIVAL

WEEK 6: THU 16TH - SAT 19TH FEB Week 6 sees the return of the annual Real Ale Festival, which has become one of the most popular events on campus. This year it is bigger and better than ever before, with a massive 100-plus beers available - there will also be real ciders, sumptuous fruit wines and turbo purple, while a suitably large hog roast will provide the perfect accompaniment! Each night will also feature live entertainment - on the Thursday, the legendary Dr Busker will be back to open the festival with a bang in his own amiable and crude fashion, while University bands will provide a suitably rousing soundtrack on Friday and Saturday. As might be expected from one of the highlights of the SU calendar, last year’s event completely sold out, so make sure you get there early to avoid disappointment – each day opens at 6pm and runs ’til late. Whether you are a seasoned ale drinker or just want to try some new tipples in a cracking atmosphere, do come along as it promises to be a fantastic event! For more info and to view photos from last year, visit our website!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - MARGARET MEAD

People & Planet society’s annual Go Green Week takes place in Week 7 this term, showcasing the work of Warwick students who combine skills with youthful zeal to tackle the biggest challenge of our generation: climate change. Throughout the week, they’ll be hosting a series of talks, debates, workshops and film screenings to educate students about issues relating to climate change and provide a platform for intellectual discussion. In previous years, Go Green pressure has led to big wins at the University, such as the creation of an Environmental Manager and environmental audit, recycling across campus, increased car parking charges, the removal of printer header paper and the removal of plastic bags from Costcutter.
