BBK Bardin, gender equality BBK's educational programme aimed at promoting values of gender equality and respect among adolescents.

BBK’s programme aimed at promoting values of gender equality and respect among adolescents in Bizkaia.

The educational programme is aimed at establishing an environment of reflection. It lasts one day (6 hours), divided into two sessions, in which a discussion on love and sexuality takes place among adolescents aged between 12 and 16 from schools in Bizkaia. An open horizon that recognises the diversity that defines us and the obstacles to establishing equal relationships.

BBK Bardin is an educational journey into the depths of affections and sexuality with adolescents aged 12 to 16.

The aim of BBK Bardin is to promote a more open, balanced, respectful and egalitarian attitude towards the emotional and sexual lives of adolescents. It is not about “instructing”, but about energising interactive processes that provide each person with the opportunity to (re)think their vision and compare it with that of their peers.

– BBK Bardin objectives for young people between the ages of 12 and 14

  • Questioning gender stereotypes and roles: so omnipresent in social life that they end up being “natural”.
  • Recognition, appreciation and respect as keys to healthy, balanced emotional relationships.
  • Affection as a form of personal relationship in the complex area of emotions.
  • Construction of personal identity.

– BBK Bardin objectives for young people between the ages of 14 and 16

  • Egalitarian masculinity, empowered femininity: other ways of being men and women, more affectionate, empathetic, respectful.
  • Emotional-sexual diversity: emotions and sexuality as a great mosaic in which each person has to find his or her own parts.
  • When is “the right time” to have sex? To defuse peer pressure that responds to the need for approval.
  • To recognise and avoid the risks that may compromise the enjoyment of the emotional-sexual experience.

In its commitment to education, BBK launched the CRUSH TO CRUSH project against male violence in the school environment in 2018, from which BBK Bardin emerged.
