The “Violence2theBench” project will involve young participants from 7 different European countries: Spain, Bulgaria, Romania, Italy, Latvia, Portugal and the Netherlands. In the process of choosing a partner, priority was given to countries with different cultural and linguistic traditions, as well as their experience in the field of prevention of sexual violence, gender discrimination and promotion of women’s sports.

Despite all the efforts made by European countries, sexist violence continues to be a serious problem for our European society.

  1. Combat gender violence, discriminate or practice and stereotypes through sport.
