The organisation Opciónate will coordinate the research, the twelve working groups in Gran Canaria and the dissemination of the results on the island.

On the occasion of the International Human Rights Day, the aim of the conference was the universal right to enjoy sport under equal conditions.

The organisation Opciónate will participate in the coordination and implementation in Gran Canaria of the study promoted by the University of Deusto for the diagnosis, analysis and prevention of the third gender-based digital divide and gender-based cyber-violence that is occurring in children aged 6 to 12 in both the Basque Country and the Canary Islands.

The initiative led by the Basque university and with which Opciónate collaborates is funded by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities of the Spanish Government within the framework of the 2022 Knowledge Generation Projects. The research will continue until 2026 with the development of its different phases, participation in academic meetings and the organisation of an international conference.

The study ‘Facing the third gender digital divide and cyber-violence in childhood: co-education, opportunities and resistance’ arises from previous projects of the University of Deusto and Opciónate that support the need for further research on this reality from an intersectional perspective. The feminist third meaning of the gender-based digital divide and gender-based cyber-violence encompasses different forms of aggression and harassment generated in digital environments, accentuated in the pandemic and post-pandemic.

The study is structured around three main phases, in which different methodologies are applied. The first consists of the organisation of thirty-nine working groups (twenty-seven in the Basque Country and twelve in Gran Canaria): thirteen discussion groups with children aged 6 to 12, nine of them in the Basque Country and four in Gran Canaria, as well as another thirteen with families and another thirteen with teachers, with the same geographical distribution.

The second phase, through the use of Participatory Action Research, carried out with educational agents (families and teachers), will propose an intervention and prevention of these realities. The third phase foresees an awareness-raising campaign and the creation of teaching materials. In addition, the work will allow for a comparative framework between the reality of the Basque Country and the Canary Islands, especially Gran Canaria, as the entire collaboration process will be carried out in both communities.

Likewise, dissemination conferences will be organised in the Basque Country and Gran Canaria and an International Conference will be held in the final year to disseminate the results of the project. The final conference will combine face-to-face and online participation to favour its international impact and the participation of renowned speakers.
In addition, the project will participate in International Congresses with posters, communications and papers to transfer knowledge and favour the exchange with experts in the field. The results of the project will also be shared at Science Fairs where the majority of the public is young people (for example, the Science Fair organised by Elhuyar in the Basque Country).

The H2020 Gearing-Roles project coordinated by the Deusto Social Values team and its associated projects will be channels for the dissemination of the project results, which will multiply the impact and international transfer of the project. Similarly, the approach to local and regional institutions in the Basque Country and the Canary Islands will be sought in order to disseminate the results of the research and promote the entry of the project’s conclusions into the public agenda.
