The #unmuteconsent campaign recognises the power of the student voice to drive change.
Be the generation that stands up and speaks out. Be the ones who actually reverse the trend of sexual harassment and violence, to create a truly respectful environment for everyone — on and off our campuses.
Consent is about respect, simple as.

We can all make a difference:
It’s time to take responsibility for our own roles in demanding and creating cultural change.
This campaign will mobilise students to learn more about consent, about personal responsibility, and about how they can make a difference. By engaging with the support and training available in every institution, we hope that over time students will be more comfortable in:
- Speaking out/reporting unacceptable behaviour and accessing support.
- Being active and challenging perceived norms of unacceptable behaviour.
- Talking about consent and relationships in a positive and confident way.
- Practising consent in their relationships and interactions.
