Short description of our project
The theme of the project “SILENCE IS NOT GOLD” is related to following the regulations of the human rights and their control when those rights are abused virtually by violence related to gender-based differences which is just a step towards the real life violence against young juveniles, minors and the youth. The aim of our project is to encourage the young people to speak out about the violence behaviour and to ask for help and co-operation. It also aims to teach the youngsters how to protect themselves from the sneaking ambitious of the ones that we can meet in the net disguised as well-wishers, advisors and a chance acquaintances by helping them to form a sense of tolerance and respect towards the ones that are different.
The project participants will get to know various virtual gender-based violence behaviours by applying non-formal education methods and interactive training methods, motivating them to take part in making recommendations for the prevention of gender-based violence, to avoid hazards on the global network.
Preparation of the participants before the exchange – investigating in details the following issues: level of virtual violence in your native country; applied prevention measures, organizations working on the problem /general information – how many are they/; the results achieved over the last two years, the percentage of children dropped out of school due to systematic harassment or domestic violence that are exposed to social marginalization. We need a short description. Each team will present in about 20 minutes the situation in their country, problems, discussions, virtual violence rate, measures taken to overcome the dangers in the Net, fighting organizations.
Each team will present their country and organization using a computer application, film or video no longer that 20 minutes, created by the participants in advance while getting ready for the youth exchange.
National evenings – “My favorite computer character”- project participants will present their countries through a favorite computer character, theatre etude, sketch or computer show.
The working methods will stimulate the participation and communication, experience exchange and discussion. Games will be used as well as interactive activities, activities for teambuilding, empathy and brainstorming. Conclusions and new meanings of the all the stuff will be presented to the audience. Thus we will carry out learning by doing and experience. The seminars will be focused on personal development, improving knowledge related to human rights respect and lack of violence based on gender differences, acquiring practical skills for self-protection and assistance to victims of virtual violence.
