Mindfulness event for LGBTQI+ Sussex community members
Tuesday 23 March, 4pm to 5.30pm
A team from the Mindfulness Network of People of Colour will be facilitating a mindfulness event for LGBTQI+ Sussex community members. This event is co-sponsored by Residential Life and Student Wellbeing.
This space will explore the intersectionality of sexuality, gender identity and race as well as the art of belonging, isolation and longing for connection. This will be done with activities such as guided meditations, mindfulness practices, presentations, and discussion (you’ll be welcome to share but with no pressure to share).
To assist in creating a secure Zoom space, participants need to register in advance using this link, providing only the name and email address they choose. The event link and password will be sent by email.

Climate Justice Week
Formerly Go Green Week, this year the Students’ Union has rebranded its week of sustainable action to Climate Justice Week, running from 22 to 29 March. There will be online events, workshops, panel discussions and more all dedicated to understanding and contributing to a more ethical and sustainable world with social equity at its core.
It’s also a chance to continue motivating and educating one another on the small changes and efforts we can all make – from reducing our meat consumption and minimising food waste, to being recycling heroes and cutting back on our plastic use.
