Erasmus+ youth exchange “No Glove, No Love” took place in Msida, Malta on 12- 20th of August, 2022. The mobility gathered 36 participants coming from Lithuania, Malta, Greece, Kosovo, Ukraine, and Georgia. The goal is to enhance youth’s ability to make conscious decisions about their sexuality and relationships, as well as their well-being and health.
INSPIRATION OF THE PROJECT
Good-quality sexuality education is needed as there is an increasing number of the sexually active adolescents who have STIs (sexually transmitted infections), teenage pregnancies, and sexual abuse. The sexual behavior and attitudes towards sexuality are rapidly changing, as young people are experiencing more freedom in their sexuality. In addition, there is a widespread of internet and media coverage which can distort the perception of sexuality. A lot of times people do not understand their own sexuality; thus, it is hard to pass the knowledge to the younger generations.
Sexuality education is lifelong learning. It includes physical and emotional well-being, sexual health, respect for yourself and others, as well as learning about sexual orientation, gender identity, and relationships.
