Meet an interdisciplinary research team from psychology, social work, law, education and linguistics who are passionate about raising awareness of the street harassment issues for young people. There will be a film shown about the research findings and key issues, a discussion, and a participatory ‘seriousness rating’ about reported street harassment incidents. Help the researchers by voicing your views on how young people can manage these potentially harmful and risky situations. We also hope to draw up policy recommendations for our local and national contacts in public services.
This is a sensitive subject to discuss, and we are aware that there are lots of people who have experienced some form of street harassment. We will keep the event enjoyable but recognise the seriousness of what we are exploring together.
We will also be providing a free hot meal and free drinks so you won't go home hungry!
