The historic Falmer Moat has been refilled at last, but it feels dreary, especially in the winter months with little sunshine.

The solution-

Rubber ducks.

Why rubber ducks? Because they're fun, they're affordable, and they are a great representation of the quirkiness of Brighton and our university.

There is great potential here for charity fundraising- sponsor a duck on the moat in return to a donation to a charity, for example. This gives back to the local community as well as giving us something to smile about.

People will argue environmental issues- biodegradable ducks are available, however the plastics in the ducks are unlikely to degrade within the moat causing microplastics.

Furthermore, any ducks with damage could be sold by the SU to raise further money for charity or themselves.

Honestly this was originally an idea that popped into my head in my morning shower after very little sleep. But sharing it with friends and coursemates has shown me that many people just want something from the university to make our campus more unique and welcoming. Something to see when you walk in through the square that will make you smile.

I am so proud to be a Sussex student. Let this be another reason to be proud of our incredible university.
