In CommUNIty102 we work to unpack and better understand consent and what relationships look like at uni. We will look at relationships, community and think about how alcohol fits in to all that. This is a workshop that looks different depending on the values of each group. This means you will be able to use the skills and info you learn in the workshop in your own community, making it safer for everyone.There is time set aside to look at consent in legal terms so that everyone is on the same page with what is illegal and what we mean when we say consent. This is the foundation that we will build from as we consider relationships here at uni.
