Active Bystander Training (Protection Approaches)

Thursday 18 July 2024
17:00 to 20:00

Understanding what to do if you witness identity-based harassment or violence

This free 3 hours interactive online course is led by identity-based violence prevention charity, Protection Approaches and has been developed in partnership with Britain's East and Southeast Asian Network (besea.n).

The expert-led sessions see participants guided through a series of discussions to explore how they can play a role in tackling identity-based harms in their community, school, or place of work.

You will learn:

  • What it means to be an active bystander: trough group discussion the participants explore what being an active bystander means to them
  • Standing up for victims: working through a series of scenarios, participants consider and learn what they can do when they encounter prejudice, harassment, or identity-based violence such as a racist attack in a supermarket or an inappropriate comment from a colleague
  • Proactive prevention: returning to the scenarios participants reflect on the root causes of prejudice and discrimination before discussing ways they could contribute to dismantling those root causes and to building safer, more inclusive, and just communities.

Joining details for the session will be emailed to participants 48 hours ahead of the workshop. Spaces are very limited so please cancel if you are no longer able to make the session so that your ticket can be released to another participant.
