2022 06 14 Mokymai1 900x501

21st of May at the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics took place training on gender-based violence. Together with Lithuanian students participated, students from Ukraine as well. The training was held in the English language.

Gender-based violence – why is it important to talk to the university community about it?

"The university's community is quite diverse and numerous. We are different and have our own opinions, beliefs, and experiences. We aim to increase the ability to recognize violence, and its various forms, promote prevention and raise awareness. Another project's "emotional journey" is the topic of bullying, which will be addressed during the youth exchange in Italy." says Justina Krauledaitė, VU MIF International Studies Coordinator.

Local Piloting Phase is a part of a two-year international project, "Creative Emotional Journey – Operational Approach ", under the Erasmus+ programme. During four hours of training, different forms of violence and their origins were tackled. Various methods from non-formal education like Story of Abigaile were tested. After watching a short film, students had a chance to test their critical thinking, argumentation and active listening skills.

In September, in Italy, will be held youth exchange where 25 youngsters will meet to share good practices from the piloting phase. Other participants countries are Italy, Spain, Greece and Portugal.
