ProblemComprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is critical for equipping young people with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for fostering healthy relationships. There is a growing body of evidence that young people are increasingly engaging with the digital world to gather information about sex and sexuality indicating an urgent need for high quality digital CSE that will complement the huge amount of information that young people find on the internet, and will fill the gaps in the quality of content and curricula and teaching methodologies employed in schools.
ApproachUNESCO, UNICEF and UNFPA engaged Love Frankie to conduct an in-depth regional mapping of digital sex education initiatives, and to design, facilitate and execute an innovative, cross-sectoral platform to enable collaboration and learning across existing initiatives, and to promote the development of innovative digital solutions on sexuality education. Love Frankie conducted a thorough landscaping of existing CSE digital initiatives in Asia, including interviews with other twenty existing initiatives in eleven different markets, as a precursor to the execution of “Turned On: Sexuality Education in the Digital Space”, a workshop bringing together various initiatives that provide sexuality education to young people throughout Asia including social media influencers, digital content producers and marketers, and representatives from various civil society organizations.
ImpactThought leadership for UN and NGO partners as well as digital initiatives and education providers with actionable recommendations on how to better collaborate, learn from one another and further their impact to affect change in CSE.
