Orange the World 2022 | We stand up against violence against women

As part of the UN campaign "Orange the World 2022", we stand up against violence at the BTU from Nov. 25 to Dec. 10, 2022, and invite all students, employees and interested parties from the city and region to take look at and actively work for a society based on solidarity. Together we set an example! All dates of the campaign days at a glance.

With the "Aktionstage gegen Gewalt" as part of the UN campaign "Orange the World 2022", the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg actively sets an example against violence, especially violence against women. The program includes lectures, readings, workshops and events, and offers the opportunity to approach the topic from different perspectives. Together with local initiatives and actors, we exchange ideas and set an example for a solidary society. All events are free and open to the public.

We raise the symbolic orange flag on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. All students and employees are invited to participate in this important symbolic act. Furthermore, the Equality Office will distribute small orange flags that can be displayed to show solidarity.
