The Shared Knowledge. Peer to Peer Training of Trainers, part three

Varshetz, 15-16 June, 2017

Third, last part of the peer education for this scholar year. One of the exercises made was via brainstorming the participants to give examples for social norms – one good and one bad or outlived its time. The young people concluded that the social norms actually have a mutual root with our prejudices. „Run away from here, shorty” – said the pharmacist when teenagers want to buy condoms; when you have older sister or brother and you have to listen to her/him just because they are older, when you say to boys “Do not behave like a girl, it is male stuff” – are a small part of the given as examples of bad social norms. The handshake of athletes at the end of the match; reading in public places when you are alone, to smile while saying Hi, to collect your dog’s poo - are part of the examples of good standards.
