Peace

The world needs you. To fight injustice. They say that the pen is mightier than the sword. But then you do need ink. And ideas. And allies. What a stroke of luck! You’re in exactly the right place to find all that. And one where action is encouraged.

Uniting young people and police through dialogue.

#PEACEFORUKRAINE

The war in Ukraine is concerns us all and many of us stand in solidarity with all those affected by this war. Together we condemn the suffering, the human and material loss that exists now because of this conflict. At the VUB, we'd like to emphasise our support for our students and our academic collaborators or partners from Ukraine and Russia. No one, except for one regime, chose this war.

As a warm university, wonderful actions have been taken internally, others are in progress. But many people within our community set up initiatives outside the campus walls that deserve a platform, now more than ever. Welcome and thank you for your help, solidarity and commitment.
