CYBERSAFE is a 2-year project funded by the European Union. Nine project partners from various European countries aim to develop, promote and disseminate innovative experiential as well as playful educational ICT tools that facilitate behavioural change among teenagers (13-16) on cyber VAWG.
CYBERSAFE promotes healthy relationships and gender equality online. It provides information and tools to prepare and facilitate four workshops on these topics, in order to encourage and support teenagers in safe and responsible online behaviour.
The project aims to create and evidence-based, attitude-changing prevention educational intervention, for teenagers on cyber gender violence against women and girls, applicable to all EU countries. CYBERSAFE will address cyber violence against women and girls and develop a systematic gender sensitive approach to prevent it and promote healthy relationships and gender equality online. The project also aims to develop and promote innovative experiential as well as playful educational ICT tools that facilitate behavioural change among teenagers regarding cyber violence against women and girls. Professionals working with teenagers will also be facilitated to run and implement educational prevention programmes on cyber violence against women and girls.
Within the scope of the CYBERSAFE project, the project partner University of Ljubljana published the report “Cyberviolence against Women & Girls”. This publication is the final report of Work Package 2 of CYBERSAFE and presents a comprehensive overview of the topic of cyberviolence. Thanks to an accurate literature review, the existing findings on the topic are presented, such as an analysis of the different forms of cyberviolence and its contextualization, and the existing research and online tools to tackle it. The situation in the project’s partner countries is also presented, as well as the results of the focus groups conducted in Estonia, Northern Ireland, Greece and Italy. The report also provides detailed information regarding the legal framework applied in cases of cyberviolence, along with the target behaviours and objectives of the project.
