Meet, connect, and share during the Sharing Days!
The Sharing Days will take place from 5-10 June. The Sharing Days is a week full of special activities held in inspiring places, during which we share what is happening and possible at the University.
The Sharing Days are all about meeting, connecting and sharing. During the Sharing Days, we will also focus on increasing the Emergency Fund, which helps students in urgent need. Working on a better world for tomorrow is not done alone; we greatly need the university community to accomplish that!
Some highlights from the programme
You are welcome at all the events but we like to draw your special attention to three activities especially for students.
Tuesday, June 6: Milou Deelen on slutshaming, gender and writing
Milou Deelen (1995) went viral when during her student days she spoke out against slutshaming at her student union Vindicat. By now she is considered one of the new generation of feminists. She has written several books and articles. Especially for students, Utrecht Union organizes an interview with Milou about being a writer, and about her views on feminism and sexism. Afterwards the bar will be open for drinks.
