This Student Led Activity will be presented by the Student Steering Committee of the Gender Network at Queens University Belfast.
Opening the 3-day event will see us exploring what is consent and what does it look like in our society today? We’ll be discussing the realities and thoughts around consent, hearing from a broad range of panelists including members of the legal sector, the voluntary sector and the media. This panel’s experiences aim to facilitate a discussion of how:
- To tackle myths and rectify problematic perspectives on consent.
- To encourage people to talk about consent in everyday life
- To encourage a healthy view of consent.
Panel members are Ms Rosemary Cowan (former Guardian crime correspondent); Dr Eithne Dowds, School of Law and Victims Support NI (TBC). Q&A follow the panel presentation.
Students can also book into the 'Got Consent' workshops on Tuesday 15th May and the Closing Event on Wednesday 16th May.
