  1. Information.Support.Connection: How are young people engaging with digital spaces to learn about bodies, sex and relationships?

    This research aimed to further shed light on young people’s (aged 10-24) engagement with digital spaces for obtaining information and education about bodies, sex and relationships. The study primarily investigated young people’s engagement with and experience of digital spaces to access sexuality education and information and attempted to answer the following questions: What do we know about young people’s engagement online? What are young people’s preferred sources of information when it comes to bodies, sex and relationships and where do digital spaces rank among these? …

  2. A review of the evidence: sexuality education for young people in digital spaces

    This desk review examines the available evidence on the extent to which digital content can influence knowledge, attitudes and practices of adolescents and young people (aged 10–24 years), and looks at the potential for digital spaces to be used to add value to the delivery of comprehensive sexuality education (CSE). Technologies are constantly changing, so this report should be seen as a snapshot of the evidence at a specific point in time.The report is in two parts. …

  3. Switched on: an exhibition on digital sexuality education providers

    This series of posters featured as part of an exhibition at ‘Switched On: Sexuality Education in the Digital Space’, a symposium held in Istanbul, Turkey, from 19 - 21 February, 2020. The posters are snapshots of digital sexuality education providers who are doing just that – taking sexuality education to the digital spaces where adolescents and young people can search for and hopefully find, the information they need. These are just a few of thousands of platforms that have emerged throughout the world and have been selected because of their innovative approaches and geographic spread.

  4. Meeting report: Switched on: sexuality education in the digital space, International Symposium, 19 - 21 February 2020, Istanbul, Turkey

    This report summarizes the key elements and outcomes of Switched On, an international symposium exploring sexuality education in the digital space held in Istanbul, Turkey from 19 to 21 February 2020.

  5. What and how: doing good research with young people, digital intimacies, and relationships and sex education

    As part of a project funded by the Wellcome Trust, we held a one-day symposium, bringing together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, to discuss priorities for research on relationships and sex education (RSE) in a world where young people increasingly live, experience, and augment their relationships (whethers exual or not) within digital spaces. The introduction of statutory RSE in schools in England highlights the need to focus on improving understandings of young people and digital intimacies for its own sake, and to inform the development of learning resources. …

  6. Adaptation in practice: lessons from teenage pregnancy programmes in Sierra Leone

    Sierra Leone has one of the highest rates of teenage pregnancy in the world. Several recent research studies have generated evidence as to why. Drivers of this problem include lack of information, knowledge and skills among girls, their sexual partners and their families; weak institutions and services, such as health, education, social work and justice; poverty and girls’ limited access to assets; widespread sexual violence and exploitation, for which there is both social and legal impunity; and engrained social and gender norms that make girls vulnerable to early sex and pregnancy. …

  7. National sex education standards: core content and skills, K–12

    the National Sex Education Standards aim to: Outline, based on research and extensive professional expertise, the minimum, essential, core content and skills for sex education K–12 given student needs; Provide guidance for schools when designing and delivering sex education K–12 that is planned, sequential, and part of a comprehensive school health education approach; Provide a clear rationale for teaching sex education content and skills at different grade levels that is evidence-informed, age-appropriate, and theory-driven; Support schools in improving academic performance by addressing a c …

  8. Implementing a whole-school relationships and sex education intervention to prevent dating and relationship violence: evidence from a pilot trial in English secondary schools

    Adolescent dating and relationship violence is associated with health harms and is an important topic for sex education. School-based interventions addressing this have been effective in the USA, but schools in England confront pressures that might hinder implementation. We assessed the feasibility of, and contextual enablers / barriers to implementing Project Respect, a whole-school intervention.We conducted a pilot trial with process evaluation in six English secondary schools. …

  9. The impact of sex education mandates on teenage pregnancy: International evidence

    To date most studies of the impact of school-based sex education have focused either on specific, local interventions or experiences at a national level. In this paper, we use a new cross-country dataset to explore the extent to which laws on sex education affect teenage pregnancy rates in developed countries. We find some evidence that laws mandating sex education in schools are associated with higher rates of teenage fertility. Parental opt out laws may minimise adverse effects of sex education mandates for younger teens. …

  10. Going beyond biology: The Relationships and Sex Education that young people want and need

    In August 2017, 14 young people from around England met to discuss what high quality RSE meant to them, along with Brook Ambassador and sex positive vlogger, Hannah Witton. The group included four young men, one young non-binary person and nine young women, aged 15 – 18. 50% of the group identified as LGBT+. The first part of the workshop began with a discussion of what makes good RSE. This was led by Lucy Emmerson, National Coordinator of the Sex Education Forum. …

  11. Sexuality education in digital spaces in Asia: Insight report

    With a view to better understanding the scope and opportunities concerning CSE in digital spaces, UNESCO commissioned LoveFrankie to conduct a regional mapping of digital sexuality education initiatives, and to highlight ‘out of the box’ digital solutions to expanding young people’s access to good quality, sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health information. …

  12. Switched on: sexuality education in the digital space

    This technical brief summarises the findings of two reviews commissioned by UNESCO in 2019. The first is a desk review of the evidence for the use of digital resources to deliver sexuality education for young people, conducted by the Institute of Development Studies (UK). The review aimed to explore the extent to which digital content can influence knowledge, attitudes and practices of young people 10-24 years old and the potential for digital spaces to be used to add value to the traditional delivery of CSE. …

  13. Scaling-up normative change interventions for adolescent and youth reproductive health: an examination of the evidence

    Adolescent and youth reproductive health (AYRH) outcomes are influenced by factors beyond individual control. Increasingly, interventions are seeking to influence community-level normative change to support healthy AYRH behaviors. While evidence is growing of the effectiveness of AYRH interventions that include normative change components, understanding on how to achieve scale-up and wider impact of these programs remains limited. …

  14. 'Culturespeak' is everywhere: an analysis of culturalist narratives in approaches to sexuality education in Mozambique

    Building on postcolonial feminist scholars and critical anthropological work, this paper analyses the frequent deployment of the notion of ‘culture’ by decision-makers, educators, international agency staff and young people in the design, delivery and uptake of sexuality and HIV prevention education in Mozambique. The paper presents qualitative data gathered in Maputo, Mozambique to highlight the essentialising nature of culturalist assumptions underpinning in-school sexuality education. …

  15. La pedagogía de la sexualidad: procesos de planificación e implementación didáctica realizados por docentes en Chile

    A pesar de los avances en las últimas décadas, en el mundo aún hay muchos niños, niñas y jóvenes que en su tránsito de la niñez a la adultez reciben información incorrecta o incompleta en educación en sexualidad. Esta circunstancia afecta sus posibilidades de desarrollo físico, social y emocional. Con el fin de atender esta situación, la UNESCO, en colaboración de otros organismos, publicó en el año 2018 el documento Orientaciones técnicas internacionales sobre educación en sexualidad: Un enfoque basado en la evidencia. …
