Consent generally refers to a person's voluntarily agreement to the proposal or desires of another.
Consent comes into play in a variety of interactions that are common within the Nowhere community:
- Physical affection, ranging from hugs to sexual contact
- Sharing food and beverages
- Photography and film
- Assigning and accepting work
Failure to check for or respect consent in any of these situations can lead to some serious harm. Because Community, Co-operation, and Inclusion are some of our guiding principles, we'd like to avoid causing harm to each other if possible!
Nowhere is an incredibly diverse community, and we value a diverse range of viewpoints and types of self-expression. Our principles also place high value on self-management and self-reliance. For these reasons, clear verbal (explicit) communication is very important to ensure that each person’s boundaries are understood and respected.
NoBED, Yes!BED is a project launched at London Decom in 2014 foster a culture of open, respectful communication around sex and physical contact within the Euroburner community.
