The #PreventGBV project has the key objective of guiding young people in conflict with the law to acquire skills to be able to identify, prevent and confront gender-based cyberviolence. The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ Programme.
The 3rd Transnational Meeting
Project partners had their third transnational meeting in Verona, Italy, on the 29th and 30th of March. The meeting, hosted by Fondazione Don Calabria per il Sociale, aimed to assess and evaluate the results of the project so far, as well as plan the next steps.
Current state of affairs of the project
At the current stage of the project, the partners, with support from local working groups (composed of young people in conflict with the law, and professionals of juvenile justice, social sciences, pedagogy, etc.), are finalising the creation of educational materials to prevent gender-based cyberviolence. One of the objectives of the #PreventGBV project is to develop open access materials for educational staff that work with young people in conflict with the law, so that they are able to give specific workshops on gender-based cyberviolence. The Romanian partner, CPIP-Centre for Lifelong Learning, is leading this work package. The University of Barcelona is in the process of finalising the evaluation tools (based on qualitative and quantitative indicators) with support from the project coordinator, Fundación Diagrama, along with the rest of the partners.
Next steps: Testing the workshop for young people in conflict with the law
The first series of workshops will be implemented in pilot form in Finland during the spring of 2023. During this pilot, Valo-Valmennusyhdistys will test the methodology, content and evaluation tools. Based on their expereinces, the other partner organisations will adapt the training to their local needs.
