The EU has taken steps to ensure that consent is respected as a fundamental human right and upheld in all types of relationships, including sexual relationships. In 2017, the EU adopted the Istanbul Convention, which is a comprehensive legal framework for addressing violence against women and domestic violence.
Despite advancements in policy to protect individuals around consent, many educational systems across Europe still do not include consent education as part of their curricula, leaving young people to rely on informal sources such as peers, the media, and the internet for information.
Educating young people about the importance of consent can help to foster a culture of respect and communication and create a safer and more inclusive society.
Act4Consent intends to use drama and storytelling to support secondary school teachers and other youth educators to address the issue of consent directly with young people, through active and meaningful education interventions.
