MenABLE - Empower Manpower against gender-based violence online

MenABLE is a two-year project co-funded by the European Union, which aims to challenge the online gender-based violence by doing a job of prevention targeting specifically boys and young men.

The project's aim is to reach early teens (13-15 years) and late teens (16-18 years) through formal and non-formal educational settings by targeting educational professionals and adults including heads of schools, teachers/educators, caregivers and other professionals working with young people in youth and sports clubs, camps, libraries and Safer Internet Centres amongst others.

The menABLE project will develop three main action pillars:

  • 1.  Creation of tools to call out and stand-up to violence through empowerment and bystander intervention materials.
  • 2.  Education and training.
  • 3.  Awareness raising activities.

Partners of European Schoolnet (EUN) in this project are three European Safer Internet Centres:

Centre for Digital Youth Care (Denmark): the centre has worked to create, provide and guarantee professional help through digital media for vulnerable young people.

Child Focus (Belgium): the Belgian Safer Internet Centre exists to promote a safer and better use of the internet and mobile technologies among children and young people.

FORTH (Greece): The Greek Safer Internet Center engages in a series of actions to raise awareness and provide information about internet safety for children, young people, parents and educators.
