Call for focus groups for research on Diverse Active* Consent

28 Jan 2022
Diverse Active* Consent

Diverse Active*Consent is a research project that aims to adapt and further develop NUI Galway's 'Active* Consent' programme. Active* Consent is a programme designed to empower young people to have positive and confident sexual health and wellbeing. Diverse Active* Consent focuses on including the voices and experiences of LGBTI+ students and students from different cultural backgrounds to inform and advance this sexual consent training programme. The project is a multi-institutional initiative, involving collaboration between the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), NUI Galway, the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) and UCC. The research team are currently carrying out focus groups with both staff and students. The focus groups involve engaging with the Active* Consent resources, including a workshop and eLearning module. Following this, the focus group discussion aims to gather participants' feedback and ideas in order to create a programme that is more inclusive and representative of students studying in Ireland today

If staff or students would like to take part, please contact and we will send on registration details.
