About the Event
SWEI has organized a consent workshop the first week back! This workshop offers the chance for students to come together to talk about consent in a safe space. Together with Martijn, who works at the Sexual Violence Center, we have come up with scenarios in which people are unsure of their boundaries. We will also provide practical tips and resources for cases where you feel that these boundaries have been crossed.
We really encourage you to join whether this is the first time you talk about consent or you care deeply about this topic.
What will we do?
Firstly, we will introduce Martijn and we will have quick yes or no questions. There are no right or wrong answers, this serves as a small ice-breaker to get the conversation started.
Then, we have prepared a total of 6 scenarios which we will discuss in small groups (we will not have enough time to go through all 6). Each group will have a SWEI member to help guide the discussion. Scenarios include consent in situations in relationships, bar/clubs and residences (aka Frascati).
Martijn will provide any additional information concerning consent and we will finish with practical tips on how to maintain boundaries.
Please keep in mind that you can leave the workshop at any time.
Who is Martijn?
Martijn is a young employee who works are the Centrum Seksueel Geweld (Sexual Assault Center). He is very knowledgeable concerning the issues and facts around consent and has also worked with other people concerning his line of work.
Why is this workshop so important?
UCG is an international environment which diversifies the learning and understanding of the student, however, this also means that everyone has a different understanding of consent. Culture and background affect how we perceive consent and boundaries, which is why it is important to come together to discuss them.
Because consent and boundaries can be an unclear topic of conversation, we made sure to have a professional guide the workshop which is a unique opportunity.
