DESTIN is a group of student organisers in the Department of International Development who work together to coordinate events and activities and build a sense of community among students (and between students and staff) in ID around three different areas:
Social events coordinators will organise a range of social activities throughout the year, likely a mix of in-person and online activities. These could include quizzes, food themed nights, coffee mornings, game nights, outdoor activities or trips etc.
Academic events coordinators will take responsibility for organising academic or educational events for students in the department. Events could include field trips to sites around London related to development, panel discussions with guest speakers or more informal events like coffee mornings with academics in the department.
Careers and professional development
Careers and professional development coordinators will help to organise events related to careers, such as networking events or talks/panel events with recent ID alumni or other professionals working in the International Development sector.
