to be aware = to inform oneself, to be aware and sensible about certain problems and issues

Some of you may already be familiar with Awareness, others may read it for the first time. We believe it is important for us all to think about it because we want to create a conference with you, at which no one should feel uncomfortable. Awareness is not just the task of the Awareness-Team but of all participants.

At this conference people with different backgrounds, social positionings, diverse experiences, stories and ideals will meet. This is a diversity that we find enriching. To make everyone feel safe and secure, it is important that we are aware of our own position and are open to the positions of others.

Racism, sexism, homo- and transphobia, and any other form of discrimination will not be tolerated at the conference. Therefore, we ask you to be conscious and respectful with one another and open to differing voices. Discriminatory and offensive behavior will be identified as such, such behavior will be decisively counteracted and those affected will be supported.

You can get in contact with our Awareness-Team at the info-table in the stairwell or hall at any time if you feel uncomfortable in situations and need mediation or conversation.
