UvA Campus Dialogues lunch session #1

Last modified on 21-05-2024 11:53
In this first session, we will focus on understanding the impact of recent events on trust within the UvA community. We'll look at the demonstrations and the need for many people to continue talking to each other in a safe space. There is also space for people to talk to each other about feelings of anger, fear, frustration and how we can find support and recognition within the community.

Campus Dialogues Lunch Sessions

The recent demonstrations on our campus and the police response to these protests have heavily impacted our entire community. In these challenging times, the Central Diversity Office is committed to offering a safe and welcoming space on campus where student and staff wellbeing, connectivity and shared reflection take a central place. To make this happen, we are organising weekly Campus Dialogues Lunch Sessions. The first session will take place on 23 May from 12:00-14:00 at VOX-POP. 

Our aim is to create a safe space, where our community can share their thoughts, concerns, emotions and views. We will explore shared values and allow space for pluralism. We want to rebuild trust together and to learn how we can work together again towards a common future. 

During these lunch sessions, we invite you as a member of the UvA community to participate. To foster dialogue and collaboration, we will invite several guest speakers who will facilitate these sessions with practical tools. 

Each of these six sessions will have its own focus: 

  • The impact of the crisis on our UvA community (Lunch session #1)
  • Rebuilding trust in our midst 
  • Common ground - what connects us? 
  • Dealing with division - what to do if we disagree? (part 1) 
  • From division to pluralism - what to do when we continue to disagree? (part 2) 
  • Towards a shared future - how do we move forward together?
