Healthy, Equal Relationships

We all have an important role to play in promoting healthy, equal relationships and helping young people understand this topic.

Gender-based violence is rooted in inequality, and research has shown that attitudes and behaviours toward gender equality often form long before adulthood.

That is why it is critical to instil positive attitudes and behaviours and create new social norms of equality and respect.

Resources for Teachers

Teachers play a vital role to help influence children and youth’s attitudes and behaviour toward healthy, equal relationships.
