Audio-visual lecture in Kysucke Nove Mesto

On the 24th of April 2023, an audio-visual lecture took place in Kysucke Nove Mesto.

The format of audio-visual lectures proved to be an effective way of non-formal education for students since the dynamics of the lecture corresponds to the current rapid trend in young people’s lives. The dynamics of audio-visual lectures reflect the fact that Generation Z lives in the world of constant updates. As a result, the members of this generation are less focused but also they are fantastic multitaskers. Audio-visual lectures make use of the ability to receive a great deal of information and incentives at the same time.

The lecturers explained negative stereotypes about women and men in public and private life. They highlighted the representation of women in the decision-making process, at all social levels and supported equal opportunities for women in access and control of economic resources, equal remuneration, and sharing of domestic duties. They used short previews from selected and up-to-date movies, TV shows, and ads in order to address the above-mentioned issues.

The pressure on boys and men to be strong, handle everything on their own, and fear nothing has a negative impact on their lives, relationships, and health.

A WHO study from 2018 confirmed that in countries where this pressure on boys and men is lower, it significantly benefits men’s health. This is reflected in their lower mortality rates, higher well-being, up to a 50% reduction in the risk of depression, a higher likelihood of engaging in protected sex, lower suicide rates, and a 40% reduction in the risk of violent death.

Boys, crying is normal.
