Youth and gender-based violence database
Different forms of gender-based violence (GBV) are present everywhere you look. But we often diminish them, justifying behaviour that allows a system of violence to continue. Let’s draw attention to the ways in which we play down toxic behaviour so that as a community, we can create a better way forward and a world free of GBV.

Sexual violence and consent
Sexual violence exists everywhere in our society and has nothing to do with sex – it’s about one person having power and control over another person. The difference between an act of sexual violence and an act that is sexual in nature is consent.
Safe dates and healthy relationship
Safe dates and healthy relationships work together to prevent youth violence (in person and online) and to develop relationships that are free from violence. Looking for people with whom you can have safe and healthy relationships is one of the actions you can take to build yourself a good life.
