UNIVERSAL PERIOD COMPETENCE
In September 2020, we started a new project: Universal Period Competence – Period Knowledge for Everyone, with funding from Allmänna Arvsfonden. The aim is that children and young people, regardless of physical and mental ability, should know what menstruation is, what it can mean for different people and feel empowered by the knowledge.
During three years, the project will produce a website, social media accounts, games, posters, pictures and films that are aimed directly at the target group. In addition, a method manual for adults in the vicinity of these children will be produced to supplement the material with tools and tips on how to hold conversations about menstruation and the body. The material will be inclusive and accessible for everyone since we are adapting the approach of universal design. Alas, the material will be usable regardless of whether or not an individual has a visual or hearing impairment, reading and writing difficulties, an NPF diagnosis or a mobility impairment. The project will also start a Period Scholarship to which young people can apply for funding in order to run their own period related projects!
