Synai/no for primary school children

Synai/no is an independent educational project of an experiential nature for the consensus of self-disposition and physical autonomy. The Genderhood’s training team’s priority is to create a safe space for expression where participants can interact freely and share their personal experiences.

In the first stage, children explore the multidimensional concept of consent. They get acquainted with it, define it and co-shape it with the support of the educators. Then, the team, through games, practices the exchange of consent by participatory activities and in ways of expressing “yes” and “no”. Towards the end, the participants individually undertake the creation of a table of their own consensual greetings, which promotes the values of consensus.
