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
