Funded with EU funds (Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme) and the state budget.
The project aimed to raise awareness about gender stereotypes and sexism online and change attitudes towards the prevention and elimination of cybercrime. Activities included the development of awareness-raising and capacity-building tools.
Capacity-building tools for a gender-sensitive approach to the prevention of cybercrime were targeted at young people, policymakers, the media, youth workers, trainers, teachers and other school workers, social workers, non-governmental organisations, and police and justice professionals. Through training sessions, professionals gained the knowledge and skills to address the issue of cyber violence against women and girls in their daily work and to adequately handle cases and provide support to victims of such violence. They were equipped with tools to ensure that their working practices would be less gender blind, which contributed to better working results and ensured that both sexes could benefit from their work equally. Through workshops for young people, primary school pupils and secondary school students were made aware of and educated about cybercrime, its forms and consequences, ways to address and prevent it, and where to go for help and report it. In addition, a trainers kit that contained a lesson plan and an educational module was developed and made available to schools and youth workers so that they could continue to educate young people about these topics.
The mobile app Click-Off was developed as a learning tool for young people, (potential) victims, groups at risk, parents, (potential) perpetrators and witnesses. It is the first app of its kind to be developed in Slovenia. It provides, among other things, measures for improving online security and safety and steps for dealing with cyber violence and abuse through the use of articles, videos and quizzes.
Activities were developed with the participation of civil society organisations.
During the project implementation phase, an internal evaluation was conducted. The evaluation was split into several phases: (1) monitoring, (2) outcome evaluation and (3) impact evaluation. The evaluation is presented at http://odklikni.enakostspolov.si/.
