best beyond stereotypes

Be.St – Beyond Stereotypes


Be.St – Beyond Stereotypes

With the Be.St – Beyond Stereotypes project we promote the development of a systemic approach across primary schools in order to facilitate relationship building amongst children based on respect and the acknowledgement of diversity in order for future generations to become more aware of their potentials.



The project “Be.St – Beyond Stereotypes” aims at contributing to produce a cultural change in educational agencies (beginning from primary schools) that can have a positive impact on the choices of future generations, who become carriers of a “zero tolerance” message on all forms of gender violence and are able to convey the cultural change in the society.
A critical thinking on gender stereotypes, transmitted through families and teachers, will help to encourage young people’s awareness of the importance of mutual respect in relationships and to diminish the phenomenon of social and psychological abuse of one sex over the other. This will facilitate a more balanced relationship between the genders and an education of children respecting the differences, which will be perceived as an opportunity for mutual exchange and growth.
Considering the importance of stereotypes in the development of each individual, the choice to define the Be.St. model and experiment the proposed path in a primary school allows to focus on individuals when the stereotypes are being formed. The school selected to be the pilot is invited to adhere to a path that includes training and information activities, addressed to teachers and families, on gender stereotypes.
In this perspective, through the definition of an innovative model of primary school that promotes the idea of ​​a Be.St school (beyond stereotypes), which is applicable and replicable on a larger scale, the project aims to achieve a twofold objective:
To contribute to the prevention of gender-based violence;
To contribute to the creation of awareness on the role of gender stereotypes in the dissemination of the gender-based violence.
The action is leaded by Fondazione PuntoSud and involves as project partners Comune di Milano – Assessorato all’Educazione and Assessorato alle Politiche Sociali; Associazione Scosse and Comitato Unico di Garanzia – Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca.
The initiative is supported by Fondazione Cariplo and Comune di Milano. Additional requests for funds have been submitted to the European Commission and the Italian Government (Dipartimento Pari Opportunità).
