Within the implementation of OPENS programme for 2019, AWC is organising one-day workshops for the representatives of youth organisations. The workshop is organised for 25 participants, it lasts 7 hours and is based on interactive work with the purpose of increasing knowledge about gender-based violence, its causes and consequences, prejudice related to this phenomena. Apart from that, the focus is on the recognition and approach to young people who have experienced gender-based violence or those who are known or assumed to be violent and increasing knowledge about the sources of support and help for the victims of violence. The education also opens the topic of sexual harassment.
