Policy Paper On Advocating For Comprehensive Sexuality Education For Young People In Europe And The Role Of Youth Led Organisations

Comprehensive sexuality education plays a crucial part in equipping young people with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to further enjoy their human rights. Going beyond their sexual and reproductive health and rights, comprehensive sexuality education empowers youth to navigate their development, feelings and relationships, while living in a safe and inclusive space with their peers. However, across Europe, comprehensive sexuality education differs in its content, the age of delivery and implementation, and many young people still lack the necessary information and skills. Furthermore, there has been a rise of opposition against sexuality education in Europe, which often translates into [...]

Statement | Two Years Since the Russian Invasion of Ukraine

On 24th February 2022, exactly two years ago, Russia launched its unprovoked and unjustifiable full scale invasion of Ukraine. This full scale attack was a further escalation of the ongoing conflict since February 2014, when Russia illegally occupied and annexed Crimea, later supporting separatists in the regions of Donbas and Luhansk, where the fighting was ongoing for 8 years before the escalation.  The full scale invasion has led to immense human suffering, the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives, including tens of thousands of civilian casualties. Since the escalation of the war, nearly 1 800 children have been killed. [...]

More recently, another tragedy occured on August 3, and to this date, only 4 survivors were rescued by a merchant vessel near Lampedusa, while 41 people are still missing (United [...]
