Challenge

Sexual and psychical violence are common among boys and girls. At EU level, the FRA carried out an EU-wide survey on violence against women (2014). One of the main conclusions is that 33% of women had suffered physical and/or sexual violence since the age of 15. Moreover, new stereotypes and forms of discrimination and violence have arisen recently from the growing use of the online networks, pointing out that sexist attitudes among the younger generation about gender roles are persistent. Therefore, there is a need to increase the work on gender-based violence (GBV) prevention among girls and boys in order to combat and eradicate this phenomenon.

Innovation

Play it for Change aims at educating and raising awareness for the prevention of GBV among girls and boys by encouraging their critical thinking and fostering their empowerment through audio-visual media.

Action

Research reports (based on desk and field research) aim at identifying the needs that school professionals should face regarding the prevention of GBV among girls and boys and the impact of gender stereotypes in audiovisual and music on girls and boys attitudes.

The Capacity Building Programme aims at enhancing the skills and knowledge of teachers and other education professionals, working in schools, regarding the prevention of GBV among boys and girls.

Girls and boys, with the guidance of the specialized teachers (music, drama, art teachers), produced and recorded GBV prevention audiovisual works and music in order to become active agents and prevent GBV among other girls and boys.
