Many international organisations, such as WHO and UNESCO, are calling for the use of Inclusive Sexuality Education programs to address groups at risk of marginalisation, including young people with disabilities. However, the availability of materials for inclusive sex education is still limited, as is the implementation experience in the field.
The INCLUDED project consortium sought to reduce this gap by creating and piloting an inclusive sex education educational programme through creative methods. The project was implemented in the UK, Spain, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, and North Macedonia.
At the final stage of the project, a policy document was developed, which includes a series of recommendations for the adoption of sex education practices in schools, as well as the experiences of each partner country at each step of the implementation of the project.
The document also includes a series of videos with testimonials from people who participated in the pilot training. More specifically, each partner country created a 10-minute video with testimonies from students, school staff, people who worked on the project, and families, in which they talk about their experience in the training, the different methodologies and practices, and their views on the issue of sex education.
