Cyberbullying is an issue widely debated in current society. The increase in online content sharing maximised its influen6al power; within the global trends exploi6ng this wave, the diffusion of distorted standards about aesthe6c, body image and shape. Therefore, people face discrimina6on and vic6misa6on because of their physical appearance, falling within the defini6on of body shaming. DiscriminHate NoBody (DHNB) project wishes to draw aaen6on on body shaming at European level, aiming to raise awareness and to disseminate empathic behaviour in order to counter every form of bullying and nega6ve judgement addressing physical appearance.
Specific objectives of the project activity are:
-To provide youth workers with knowledge, skills and tools to raise awareness on the phenomenon of body shaming as a form of cyberbullying, its causes and its social consequences;
-To stimulate engagement in implementing concrete actions to sensitize and to contrast body shaming;
– To foster active citizenship in the direct target group of youth workers and the ultimate target group of youth and society.
As a result of the training we plan to produce a manual ”Educate not to Hate”, including guidelines to recognize body shaming on social media, successful models of existing initiatives and programmes addressing the issue, and a Toolkit of tailored non-formal methods workshops created by the youth workers.
• PARTICIPANTS: Youth workers aged 18+ with some experience of working or volunteering with youngsters or with a strong motivation to undertake this type of path.
