Opciónate has started meetings with 10 schools in the municipality of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in order to know the needs and characteristics of each of them and of the students between 11 and 12 years old who will participate in the project.
With the Ciberpasaporte Ciudadanía por la Igualdad Opciónate with the funding of the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria wants to emphasize the existing male chauvinist inequality in the digital world and its different manifestations; a problem that needs urgent attention from institutions and citizens.
Opciónate has begun meetings with 10 educational centres in the municipality of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with the aim of getting to know the needs and characteristics of each of them and of the students aged between 11 and 12 who will participate in the project.
The “Cyberpassport Citizenship for Equality” project is part of the specific line that Opcionate has been developing around the way in which we relate to each other on the Internet and the way in which we act as cybercitizens.
It is necessary for educational centres to hold workshops to provide young people with the necessary information so that they can feel safe and secure, reflect on the impact or effect of their actions, and be citizens for equality by actively participating on the internet.
Opciónate will use a theoretical-practical and experiential methodology from a gender, diversity, rights and intercultural approach for the development of this project.
It is important that this problem is tackled from an early age as the data confirms a significant increase in the use of technologies and social networks. The Canary Islands are at the top of the list of communities with 98.9% of children between 10 and 15 years of age using the Internet and 73.1% having a mobile phone.
