WeDecolonizeVUB is a brand new project by the University Centre for Development Cooperation (UCOS) that takes place at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) campus.
The project consists of three branches, namely a safe space, a library and social events, that are carried by a dynamic and diverse group of VUB students for all students. With the before mentioned group we aim to give the students of the VUB the opportunity to learn more about (de)colonization and anti-racism by creating a safe space that will tackle these sensitive topics and make room for students to meet, interact and exchange their thoughts and opinions.
The library in the yellow campus dorms of the VUB is filled with books that were written by non-western authors concerning anti-racism and decolonization and other fiction and non-fiction books. In addition to this, WeDecolonizeVUB aspires to organize events where non-white speakers will be invited to dialogue with the students regarding specific topics within the (de)colonization and anti-racism theme.
