“6 Nations” Symposium held at Queen’s University Belfast

Policy stakeholders share best practice on Relationship and Sexuality Education

Queen’s University Researchers hosted a “6 Nations” Relationship & Sexuality Education (RSE) Symposium that brought together senior policy makers from the four nations of the UK [England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland], along with the Republic of Ireland and Uruguay to learn and disseminate information about RSE practice in each nation. The delegates were also joined by experts from the World Health Organisation and Rutgers International.

The event, funded by Queen’s University Engaged Research Fund and EuroSocial, stimulated great enthusiasm among attendees providing a unique opportunity for policy makers for collective learning and international collaboration.
