Vote for your favourite idea to emerge from the Sex, Rights and Pleasure Lab

Published on 27 January 2017

Digitally mediated sexual and  gender based violence affects young people all over the world.

In the Sex, Rights and Pleasure Lab, teams of students came together to create new interventions to digitally-mediated gender-based and sexual violence. Many of the students had never met before and, over the course of four cold days in January, they discussed using a sexual health rights approach that highlighted the importance of the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence for all persons.

With the help of designers, researchers, journalists and marketing experts the students developed four great ideas for interventions. They were encouraged to work on their ideas in teams and to be clear about the what, the why, the who and the how. They were not expected to make full feature films or beautifully crafted adverts.

The resulting team pitches have been published online and we invite you to vote for your favourite concept via YouTube. On 10 February 2017 we will collate the number of YouTube views and likes and the one with the highest number will win the #sexrightspleasure award. Get liking and sharing!
