How do young people learn about sex today? Increasingly, sexuality education and information are being delivered through digital spaces, reaching millions. Working with UNESCO this project begins with a desk review of the evidence for the use of digital resources to deliver sexuality education for young people.
The work explores the extent to which digital content can influence knowledge, attitudes and practices of adolescents and youth, and looks at the potential for digital spaces to be used to add value to the traditional delivery of comprehensive sexuality education.
Phase two of the project involves coordinating a series of case studies, illustrating a diverse range of active digital platforms delivering information on bodies, sex and relationships from around the world. Findings will be shared at the UNESCO Forum ‘Switched On: Sexuality Education through Digital Spaces’ taking place in February 2020 in Istanbul.
