Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, sexual health rights advocacy of key groups across Europe have had to either stop, postpone, or adapt their in-person training activities.
In response, the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG), European Sex Workers rights Alliance (ESWA), and Legebitra partnered on the e-MPOWER project to support youth activists to deliver online peer-training sessions focused on the digital rights, and both the sexual and mental health of people living with HIV, sex workers, and LGBTQI+ communities.
As part of the European Year of the Youth highlighting the importance of youth in building a more inclusive and safe digital future, EATG, ESWA and Legebitra are hosting a webinar to present the e-MPOWER online toolbox. The toolbox will be freely accessible to the public and may assist others in planning for youth-focused online sexual health training programmes.
Contents include 20 resource materials that are recent, accurate and inclusive in respect to the sexual health and rights of sex workers, people living with HIV, and LGBTQI+ persons. Moreover, it contains project reports with recommendations for monitoring and evaluating content and personal impact of an online sexual health training, and how to do so in a way that is mindful of participant psychological well-being and digital safety.
This is taking place Wednesday 6 July at 12:00-13:00 CEST. To attend, please register here.
