Conversations on Consent

By Conversations on Consent
The Conversations on Consent (CoC) Podcast explores with experts, survivors, academics and activists how consent-seeking behaviour that is based on mutual respect can become common practice on the personal, interpersonal and societal level. As consent seeking begins at the most intimate level, and from there extends to all human interactions the CoC campaign gets everyone to speak about consent to foster a new norm based on empathy for one another.
