"I Care, We Care" - The project
The participation in an advanced legal training course on human rights on preventing and combating 'gender-based' violence - part of the Council of Europe's 'HELP' programme ('European Programme for Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals in the European Union') - enabled a group of lawyers who have long been committed to the protection of fundamental rights to meet.
From this meeting a dream was born and, with great commitment and determination, this dream is becoming reality.
The spark of our idea was ignited by the common awareness that violence, in all its forms, is first and foremost a problem of cultural origin.
The President of the EU Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, accepting the lesson of Don Milani, said that 'I care, we care' must be Europe's motto: we have taken up the baton and made it the name of our project.
Our presence throughout the country - from Trentino to Sicily - has allowed us to spread the project to various schools in Italy. Observing the different regional realities and the valuable comparison with students also allows us to study in depth numerous topics related to youth discomfort, both related to the use of social networks (cyber-bullying, hate speech, revenge porn) and of other kinds (body shaming, discrimination, and more).
Our commitment extends to a strong collaboration with universities. We partner with organisations that deal with the protection of victims of violence to offer legal support and training to operators and social workers. Training courses for companies are in the making, which are aimed at achieving gender equality in the work sector, one of the goals set out in the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
We firmly believe that change must start with each one of us, and on the centenary of the beginning of the non-violent revolution implemented by Ghandi, we would like to try to be the change we want to see in the world.
