University of Galway Students’ Union Launches Consent Week

University of Galway Students’ Union are running a series of events to mark their annual Consent Week which starts on the 6th of February. These events, in partnership with Active* Consent, will look at key issues impacting on the Sexual Health and Wellbeing of students. There will be workshops, STI testing clinics and a sold out charity Sex Toy Bingo event.

The Active* Consent workshop will be looking at Digital Intimacy – a common part of modern relationships. The workshop empowers students with the knowledge and skills to navigate digital intimacy in a consensual way, while also highlighting the challenges that digital intimacy can pose. The Disclosure Training event with Galway Rape Crisis Centre provides participants with the skills and knowledge to deal appropriately with a disclosure of sexual violence

Students’ Union Vice-President/Welfare and Equality Officer Izzy Tiernan said: “We have some great workshops and events coming up this week for Consent Week. Students’ Unions and Universities need to take a strong lead in ending the culture of victim blaming as sexual violence and harassment are still prevalent issues in today’s world. Consent is Ongoing, Mutual and Freely Given – this is the core message of the University of Galway Active* Consent programme.”

Students’ Union President Dean Kenny added: “We hope that our Consent week events will encourage our students to take a responsible attitude to sexual health and healthy relationships. We still have a long way to go in Irish society in terms of breaking down the taboo of talking about sex. We want our students to be educated about their sexual rights.”

Press Release: Students’ Union Launch Wasted Week 

University of Galway Students’ Union today launched their Wasted Week which will run 29th-2nd February. The week will look at environmental issues such as food waste, recycling, litter and fast fashion. The Union is collaborating with a number of groups from the University of Galway to highlight these issues throughout the week.

There will be an upcycling clothes workshop with Bród Society where students can learn how to give their clothes a new lease of life. A waste free pot luck will see students bringing in their leftovers to cook a zero food waste feast. On Friday students will be doing a beach clean up to make Galway a cleaner, greener place.

Students’ Union President Dean Kenny said: “We are delighted to be hosting our second Wasted Week to encourage our students to become more sustainable and environmentally conscious. Many of our students are turning away from fast fashion so it’s great to be able to show then new ways to upcycle old clothing.”

Students’ Union Environmental and Sustainability Officer Molly Hickey added:

“It’s fantastic to have the support of our student societies for Wasted week. University of Galway students are very climate conscious and want to play their part in making Galway and the world a better place for us all”
