About our SID activities

In the context of SID, the menABLE activities are dedicated to addressing the pressing issue of gender-based violence (GBV) online. While acknowledging the growing importance of internet access and digital skills, the project also recognises the alarming rise of violence in the digital sphere. As a part of SID, we are committed to providing a sneak peek into the menABLE Research Report on GBV online. Our aim is to shed light on the challenges posed by online abuse and violence, offering insights into the amplifying role of ICT and the intersecting forms of discrimination that exacerbate the issue.

What we are doing to support the SID 2024 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
By developing educational tools and conducting awareness activities, the menABLE project addresses the root causes of GBV online, aiming to change social norms and behaviours, and fostering mutual awareness, tolerance, and respect in the digital sphere. The project's commitment to reaching early and late teens in various online settings, such as Safer Internet Centres, contributes directly to the SID collaborative efforts for a safer and more positive internet experience. Finally, by focusing on prevention strategies, the project emphasises the importance of collective action for a more secure and inclusive internet.

About us

menABLE is a 24-month project co-funded by the European Commission. Its primary objective is to combat GBV online by fostering mutual awareness, tolerance, and respect.
Recognising that the active involvement of men and boys is crucial to achieving the project’s goals, the project aims to prevent GBV online by tackling its root causes and by promoting means of prevention strategies primarily, but not exclusively, targeting boys and young men.

The menABLE project will develop three main action pillars by:

  • Creating tools to call out and stand up to violence through empowerment and bystander intervention materials.
  • Offering a range of national and European training and outreach activities to train and support young people and the professionals working with young people.
  • Promoting awareness raising activities to tackle gender-based prejudices and stereotypes which could lead to GBV (online).
