Sex and sexuality education (SexEd) is one of many factors that influence social, mental and physical health and well-being of individuals. Therefore SexEd is a part of human rights education, education for democratic citizenship and intercultural education. SexEd is about verbalising sex and sexuality without prejudice and stereotyping by using healthy discourse, building on understanding and respect for sexual diversity, working against taboos, violence and discrimination.
Sixteen training units written and piloted by participants and edited by a team of experienced Pestalozzi trainers are available for interested teachers and teacher trainers to try out and adapt.
