Events

As part of the Nottingham Reading Programme, the Rights Lab and Faculty of Social Sciences have organised loads of events throughout the year. We’ll be adding more events and confirming dates, times and locations throughout the year so don’t forget to check back.

 

Educate

These events will firstly be a place where we can better understand modern slavery and learn how we can contribute to ending it by 2030, which is a target of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  We will be hearing from slavery survivors and world-leading experts, and hosting workshops and film screenings.

Advocate

We want to do something to help end modern slavery! So these events will also give you the opportunity to become advocates and raise awareness, and funds for anti-slavery work.  We will be hosting photography exhibitions, music nights, and even a campus fun run.
