Making Education Equally Safe for All: Working with young people to prevent gender based violence

This one day conference was part of the 16 Days of International Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign. It raised awareness of the issue of gender-based violence and highlighted work being done to tackle this within or linked to the University of Strathclyde, as well as by partner agencies.

This conference also marked the launch of the Equally Safe in Higher Education Programme, who co-facilitated the event with the Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice and the Centre for Health Policy.
