CONVEY – Counteracting sexual violence and harassment: engaging Youth in Schools in digital education on Gender Stereotyping.
“Hope For Children” CRC Policy Center together with other 5 partners, CESIE (IT), The Smile of the Child (GR), Gender Alternatives (BG), Westminster City Council (UK), Sexual Violence Centre Cork (IE) started at 1st of September 2016 the implementation of the CONVEY project that aims to design digital educational tools for gender equality. CONVEY targets to prevent sexual violence and harassment and positively modify violent behaviours against women and to raise awareness on gender stereotyping and sexualisation of women in digital media.
CONVEY supports young people in promoting a key message – I say NO to sexual violence – contributing to overcome gender stereotypes and eradicate sexual harassment in schools.
CONVEY’s objectives are to:
- Develop peer-to-peer approaches to education and awareness-raising on sexual violence and harassment against women by training young people on the effects of gender stereotyping and sexualisation in digital media;
- Educate and contribute to behavioral change of young people in the field of sexual violence, harassment and gender stereotyping by developing an educational simulation game and a pilot creative program of gender equality and sexual education, critical digital media literacy;
- Foster the respect of women’s rights and dignity in schools through a train-the-trainer program for teachers on the prevention of gender stereotyping and sexualisation in the digital society
- CONVEY is a project funded by the Rights, Equality & Citizenship Programme of the European Union.

CHAPTER - Children Help movement Against Physical Threatening and Emotional Repression
This project reflects the pressing need for understanding, confronting and protection of children from serious criminal offense - corporal punishment. An expression of helpless parenting, information deficit and lack of understanding of human suffering, corporal punishment has serious negative impact on the children and adolescent personality.
Although, the international community takes measures at all levels to place the child in a position of supreme value to the family and society, as can be seen in the Council of Europe wanting to outlaw corporal punishment of children in all its 47 member states, there are still communities that practice and even encourage corporal punishment of children as a form of disciplinary and educational act without state actors intervening in the practice.
- To increase knowledge and skills in authority in the field of effectively and positive parenting and upbringing in accepting, constructive and fulfilling way
- To build unified methodology for presenting the problem and rethinking of corporal punishment (CP)
- To raise the society general awareness to difficult experiences and consequences that CP has on the children and adolescents
- To explore and bring "best practice" at international level in 3 EU MS, with a strong upbringing patriarchal conception
- To coordinate the efforts of various social structures and communities to work in direction of legislative changes and virtually eliminate the issue
