Feminist Climate Action Online Workshop

The UMSU Women’s and Environment Departments are collaborating to deliver a Feminist Climate Action Workshop! This workshop will give you the skills to become a leader in the climate activist movement!

We are excited to welcome the Women’s Climate Justice Collective to help us host and run this workshop! The Women’s Climate Justice Collective is a national group led by women, aiming to mainstream feminist climate justice and support women in the climate and women’s rights movements.

⏰TIME: 3pm – 4:30pm
📍WHERE: Zoom
📅 BOOK: https://bit.ly/FeministClimateAction

This event is autonomous, meaning it is open to women and non-binary students.

We acknowledge that this event is planned and facilitated on the land of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri tribes of the Kulin Nations, and that sovereignty for this land was never ceded. We would also like to acknowledge the lands on which participants are calling in from. We’d like to pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We’d also like acknowledge that sexism has disproportionately affected Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and non binary people, and that they should always be at the forefront of our feminist activism.

Mental Resilience Workshop: Interpersonal Relationships

Introducing to you the brand new Mental Resilience Workshop organised by UMSU International! This workshop is a new initiative aiming at increasing students’ awareness on mental well-being, improving students’ mental health literacy, and assisting students in developing mental resilience. This year, the workshop focuses on understanding healthy/unhealthy relationships with family, friends, and partners. The session involves two parts: first, an introductory presentation, during which participants gain insight into respective topics; second, a practical component in which participants apply previously learned skills/knowledge to practice scenarios and activities.

Register and come along to our new interactive workshop and gain thoughtful insights into relationship boundaries.

Registration link: bit.ly/MRW2019

Workshop Topic: Relationships and Boundaries: Family, Friends, and Significant Others
Date & Time: Monday 13/05, 1:15 – 2:45 pm
Location: Arts West North Wing 361

This workshop was rescheduled and will now take place on Tuesday, May/7 at 2-4pm. Sawsan Alfayadh from YOUNG campaigns will be speaking about the intersection of economic and racial justice in the election context.

As a young Muslim woman, who migrated to Australia when she was just 6 years old, Sawsan’s identity has been politicised from a very young age. This led her to start volunteering at RISE when she was still in high school, aiming to seize control of the conversation about the issues that affect her daily life. In her subsequent work at YOUNG for Economic Justice, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and Happy Brain Education (among others), she has supported young people and migrants to elevate their own voices and take action on the issues that affect them. She is also a Harry Potter nerd and may have sandpapered her mum’s car in an attempt to make a wand.

The UMSU People of Colour Department acknowledge that this event is taking place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and future and acknowledge that this land was stolen and sovereignty was never ceded.
