Webinar ‘Buenas Prácticas. Una aproximación a la ciberviolencia contra las mujeres y las niñas [Good Practices. An approach to cyber violence against women and girls]’.

Client: Cabildo de Gran Canaria Presidency Office

Dates: 2020

Scope: Social project

Services: Training, Consulting


This online training program will focus on the experiences and actions being implemented at an international, European, national and local level. Instances of experiences with positive outcomes which result in strategies used in the fight against gender violence taking place online. The practices and projects, through the voices of their protagonists, will feature the progress made in the framework of the protection of women’s human rights in the digital context. The presentation of illustrative successful experiences in a shared space for debate and reflection will result in the acquisition of valuable knowledge. We find it very exciting and inspiring to hear what other organizations and women have to say, and get to know their work, practices and achievements. By sharing good practices, we want to learn, but also collect, exchange and create associations that serve a starting point to enable mutual support, generate collective networks, and also raise awareness and build resiliency.
