The Tent

Cyber exploitation and violence in its crudest form involves the sharing of intimate photographs and videos. This appears to have evolved into a culture among young people in Sri Lanka. If they’re in a relationship, the intimate photograph (nude) is viewed as a symbol of trust and love. This session is about getting young people to THINK before they share, to BE SENSIBLE in their relationships, and to address the culture of shame.

Language: English

Age suitability:14-17

Facilitated by Hans Billimoria – Director of The Grassrooted Trust
