Throughout 2018 Youth Work Ireland will be working on the theme of Positive Sexual Health. This topic was chosen from a consensus process in 2017 which included workshops, survey, online campaign and finally a vote at our national conference in October.
During Youth Work Ireland Week young people will take part in workshop consultation to identify the topics, in relation to Positive Sexual Health, they want to LEARN MORE ABOUT e.g. listen to speakers / experts at the conference, hear case studies on this issue, BE HEARD ON e.g. be part of a national awareness campaign or CHANGE/HAVE INFLUENCE ON e.g. be involved in decisions to affect a change.
We are also carrying out an online survey to ascertain young people's views and opinions on sexual health issues, such as consent, health relationships and the current #metoo and #timesup movements. The results of this survey will be released during Youth Work Ireland Week.
