Choose who you want to be
In 2015, we launched an Emancipation Project on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The aim was to educate international students about equality, emancipation, sexual diversity, gender diversity and associated themes and increase acceptance of lesbians, homosexuals, bisexuals and transgender people.
As part of this project, we trained 12 international students as emancipation ambassadors. On 30 March 2016, the Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science Jet Bussemaker received a pamphlet about the project’s results and met the emancipation ambassadors.
Keep the discussion going
The emancipation process is not yet complete. We encourage you to learn about these themes in the Netherlands, to share your own experiences and discuss them with your fellow students and alumni. Help us to keep the discussion going, share your experiences with us and increase awareness across borders!
