CSE in Practice
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Croatia is lacking meaningful comprehensive sexuality education (CSE), and this project seeks to change that through research and advocacy efforts. After Marinella conductsresearch on the topic of youth sexuality, she wil use that research as the basis of advocacy efforts with both the public and the government to implement meaningful CSE in Croatian schools, including six workshops to be held in dormitories in the community. Ultimately, the project will produce a youth advocacy toolkit on CSE that can serve as a foundation for others to push for meaningful CSE moving forward.
