PEOPLE

Is that a little abstract? Not at all. The world is mainly made up of people just like you and me. Looking for acceptance, prosperity, reassurance, happiness, a helping hand, equal opportunities. Here, on the very spot you're standing, you can do something for them.

THE GENDER WEEK. FOCUS ON THE POWER OF WOMEN.

Klik hier voor Nederlands

The world needs women. Literally. Because women bring solutions. For economic crises. For better healthcare. For climate change. Discrimination on the basis of gender - unfortunately still a reality - is therefore a brake on sustainable development, peace and progress. The Gender Week from 8 to 12 March goes in search of causes and remedies for this sorry state during workshops, lectures and a movie night followed by a debate. So be there, everyone. Yes, men too. 

Gender Week 8-12 March 2021

The world needs you...

..and your critical voice and fresh perspective on VUB policies. This autumn the Equality Thinktank will organise several online co-creative activities on the topic of (anti)-racism and equality. With a group of committed VUB-ers, you’ll be at the heart of VUB’s future equality action plan. Are you ready to convert your expertise into commitment for the world? Sign up now for the events or register to stay up to date about future activities.
