What is Consent-Based Education and should it be on your radar?

In this session, Sophie Christophy will share about the transformative theory and practice of consent-based education.Find out what consent-based education is, how it makes the world of difference to the experience of learning and education, and what you can do to help make your setting and practice more consent-based.
