Hope For Children" CRC Policy Center hosts the 2nd transnational meeting of the project CONVEY - Counteracting sexual violence and harassment: Engaging Youth in schools in digital education on gender stereotyping , welcoming Organisations from 5 countries: CESIE (Italy), Gender Alternatives Foundation (Bulgaria), The Smile of the Child (Greece), Sexual Violence Centre Cork (Ireland), Westminster City Council (UK).
At the meeting, partners present the outcomes of the first meetings with youth peer groups, and survivors of sexual violence and harassment. The consultation is currently being implemented in all countries, and it is contributing to the development of a digital game to promote gender equality.
"Hope for Children" CRC Policy Center and the 5 European partner Organisations, are working to reach an optimal structure and content for the digital game, which will be an educational tool to support teachers in raising the awareness of young people on gender based violence.
A training programme for teachers and educators will be developed and implemented, focusing on how the digital game can be used in a classroom context to inform young people on the meaning and consequences of sexual violence and gender stereotyping, as well as to inform about existing support mechanisms and on how young people can contribute to stop gender based violence.
CONVEY - Counteracting sexual violence and harassment: Engaging youth in schools in digital education on gender equality is co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme of the European Union.
