Respect for each and everyone: a priority

T

hrough posters, and the distribution of video clips from day to day, this campaign has a double objective: to draw attention to the negative impact of harassment and to remind the whole community that there are help and listening devices within ULiège, whether one is a victim or a witness. This awareness is part of the #RESPECT campaign, launched in September 2019 by the Vice-Rector for Education and Well being, Anne-Sophie Nyssen.
 
Thanks to the University of Geneva for inspiring this campaign!

 

Awareness-raising activities

  • On the occasion of the International Day against Violence against Women, on 25 November 2021, the exhibition "I am not your words" will stop at the Sart Tilman and on the Gembloux campus. A film debate will also be organised around the film "Promising young woman".
  • During the months of January/February 2022, a large-scale European study on sexual and sexist violence will be launched at ULiège and in 45 other universities. The entire university community will be invited to take part. The data collected will then be translated into recommendations and guidelines to strengthen our prevention actions in this area.
  • Slam workshops will also be organised in February and March 2022 on different campuses. The aim of these workshops is to offer students and PhD students a space for expression in relation to the theme of consent. The texts written during these workshops will be shared on 9 March 2022 during open stages, accessible to all.
