ISEX project brings the issue of sexual education high on the agenda not only of educational institutions, but also of teachers and parents, in an effort to tackle stereotypes and change long-lasting mentalities. ISEX main goal is to build the capacities of teachers and provide them with useful tools promoting sexual education, while directly involving members of the following target groups: a) Secondary school children (11-18-year-old), b) Parents and grandparents and their children, c) Professionals involved in sexual education: teachers, youth workers, experts, civil professionals, coaches, school psychologists, d) Institutions such as schools, decision makers, stakeholders in education, and e) Broader public.
The main objectives of the project are as follows:
- initiate open discussion about sexuality;
- shift from problem centred approach to a natural, open and joyful communication on relationships and sexuality;
- involve the family and bring together generations (parents, grandparents and youth);
- integration of a youth centred, modern approach of relationship- and sexual-education in schools;
- enable teachers and youth workers with means to handle the topic naturally with confidence and with up-to-date knowledge and openness;
- raise public attention, emphasize the importance of the topic;
