 The methodology used for the realization of these sessions was non-formal through various engaging videos, visual images, and exercises to reflect and stimulate critical thinking about the information and phenomenon. These tools and teaching strategies allowed the young people to be interactive with the material during the 45-minute sessions.

Young people were informed about the phenomenon of human trafficking and modern slavery, the causes of this phenomenon in our society, how they can identify the signs of a potentially dangerous situation, and social media as one of the most widespread forms of online recruitment for victims of trafficking and exploitation.

327 young people between the ages of 15 and 18 participated in these sessions.
