    DAUK Virtual Student Social

    What will student life and advocacy look like next year? With the move to online classes, how can we engage with other democrats abroad, and mobilize our peers to vote in November?

    Come join students from across the UK in an informal discussion on life during COVID-19. Let’s talk about the impact of a disrupted spring term, and brainstorm what virtual events/activities we’d like to see from DAUK in the upcoming months. We will also begin to strategize about the role we can play in increasing voting among overseas Americans in the fall.

    Please register here by May 25th and Democrats Abroad UK members will be sent the Zoom link via email the morning of the event.

    Climate Change: Role in Democratic Elections + Prospects for a New Administration

    Brendan Guy will meet with us to discuss the role of climate change in the primary and general elections set against the backdrop of Democratic primary voters expressing greater concern about climate issues than ever before. He will also discuss the prospects for a new Administration to lead on climate change, both internationally and domestically, and particularly in the lead up to the pivotal 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change to be hosted in Glasgow, UK in 2021.


    Brendan is the Manager of International Policy at the Natural Resources Defense Council (Brendan will be speaking in a personal capacity and the views expressed do not reflect the views of the Natural Resources Defense Council). Brendan works to enhance climate ambition from major emitters, advance nature-based solutions to climate change, and chart the international climate agenda for future US presidential administrations. He has taught international climate policy at Oxford University's Blavatnik School of Government and the American University’s School of International Service. Brendan holds a Master of Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and is based in London.  

    Be sure to RSVP for this event - the Zoom room information will be sent the morning of to all those who have responded.

    While there is no donation requirement to attend, we hope you’ll consider a donation of $10 - and help reach hundreds of potential voters through our Call the World campaign.

    Outside London? We Want to Hear from You!

    Ahead of the Global Presidential Primary in March 2020, we'd like to build a community of DA members throughout the country, so that when the time comes for us to vote, we're ready and mobilized. Already we've heard from members in Berkshire, South Wales, and the Cotswolds. We're working to put together groups in these areas. We'll help you to provide organizing support from our Voter Registration and GOTV teams and explain the Global Presidential Primary in detail. Email vice-chair@democratsabroad.org.uk for more information.
