CREATE Youth-Net is a project that engages young people in the campaign on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Forced Marriage across three European countries: UK, Portugal and the Netherlands. All partners undertake similar actions across the three countries.

CREATE Youth-Net involves:

  • Research about young people’s knowledge and attitudes on FGM and Forced Marriage [PEER report blog post], and reviewing services and support for young people on FGM and Forced Marriage
  • Youth Advocates Training – raising awareness of the issues among young people and actively engaging them and supporting them to lead their own campaigns against FGM and Forced Marriage.
  • Creating networking, sharing and learning spaces for young people to come together and share the work they have done in countries to help end FGM and Forced Marriage [Create Youth-Net conference]
  • Developing youth friendly resources about FGM and forced marriage and materials to help young people build advocacy skills.
  • Youth-led creative public awareness events to engage young people and their communities in dialogue about FGM and Forced Marriage.
  • Delivering training on FGM and Forced Marriage in schools and to professionals.
