EWL members in Cyprus tie up project on preventing gender-based violence among young people

To mark the closing of the Daphne III project ‘Perspective’, which focused on developing and implementing strategies aiming at preventing gender-based violence among young people, EWL member the Mediterranean Institute for Gender Studies (MIGS) is happy to make available project information leaflets developed within in the context of an information campaign targeting secondary education students and teachers with the aim to raise awareness on gender-based violence as well provide general information on the project objectives and activities.

The information leaflets are available in English and Greek.

Also available is the Final Project Report which includes the results of the peer education training workshops conducted with adolescent girls and boys in secondary schools. The training workshops focused on topics such as bullying, gender-based violence in intimate relationships, gender roles and stereotypes, among others. In the report one can find details on the peer education methodology, the material and exercises used, as well as reactions and key messages from the young participants during the training. In addition, the report includes a section on the perceptions and attitudes of young people in relation to gender-based violence.

The ‘Perspective’ project was funded by the Daphne III Programme of the European Commission and coordinated by the City of Modena in Italy, in partnership with organizations in five European countries.
