By virtue of the Grant Contract – Directorate General Justice and Consumers of the European Union – n. REC-AG-2017 810417 – DECIDES EUROPE – Preventing Gender-Based Violence, the Youth’s Outlook, hereinafter referred to as DECIDES Europe, is a project co-funded by the European Union, designed and managed under the responsibility of the Interarts Foundation for International Cultural Cooperation, hereinafter referred to as Interarts, with headquarters in Spain, carrer Mallorca 272, 9ª, 08037 Barelona.

DECIDES Europe contributes to reduce Gender Based Violence (GBV) in three European countries, Denmark, Romania and Spain, by improving the awareness of young people about all forms of gender-based violence (GBV), its causes, consequences and by providing tools to prevent, recognize and counter it. The beneficiaries of the project are young students, aged 15 to 18, school staff, such as teachers, counsellors and school managers, parents, and vulnerable groups such as young people and young migrants. The project also encourages local authorities and schools involved to set up a common framework or protocol of action to address GBV in the educational system.

The action has the following objectives:

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the prevention of gender-based violence (GBV) by improving the awareness of young people about all forms of GBV, its causes, consequences and providing tools to prevent, recognize and counter it. It should be noted that today there is no unified policy among EU Member States to end this phenomenon, despite the existence of European protection orders for victims. The project will therefore also encourage local authorities and schools involved to set up a common framework, or protocol of action to address GBV in the educational system.

Specific objectives/Outcomes:

  • To effectively contribute to a change in attitudes and behaviours of young people and their environments towards GBV.
  • To improve young people’s and teachers’ detection and identification capacities and their knowledge of GBV causes and consequences.
  • To increase the visibility and awareness about GBV, its forms, causes and consequences both inside and outside schools.
  • To improve school staffs’ capacities to develop projects to detect potential cases and cooperate with other schools and relevant stakeholders.

The expected outcomes will be reached by:

  • At national level: comprise workshops for young students to discuss and provide information about prevention, cultural and social aspects related to GBV. Such workshops will refer to different cultural and artistic disciplines (visual arts and forum theatre), and will bring to the creation of specific cultural outputs. Seminars and trainings addressed to students will train them as peer educators and to teachers to increase their capacity of detecting potential victims.
  • International level: exchange visits to allow beneficiaries to meet different realities; final international conference celebrated at the end of the project with participants from different EU countries; 1 online platform created to disseminate in languages the project’s outputs.
