Let’s Talk About Consent

Welcome to our WISER tutorial on Consent. Here’s a hello from Nicole, one of our educators:

Consent is another word for permission, and we often talk about consent when we talk about people doing things to our bodies such as touching them or taking photos of them or sharing those photos. This video gives some good examples about consent from someone trying to figure out how to be human.

So if you want something to happen, like a hug, say yes. And if you don’t want something to happen then say a great big N-O. And if you want to do something to someone else, make sure you get their consent too.

Sometimes we can’t give consent, such as when we are asleep or don’t understand what we are being asked. We also can’t give consent to anything if we have been drinking alcohol, using drugs or are being asked by someone with power over us who we don’t feel allowed to say no to.
