200.000 data collection through the creation of a Transnational Artificial Intelligence text analytics platform to identify anonymously pressing social problems related to GBV and first sexual-affective relationships of youngsters and the general public of Barcelona, Madrid and Milan
Design of a Capacity-Building Training (C-BT) in 6 high- schools to support preventing and identifying GBV in youth early affective-sexual relationships.

Validation of the C-BT in the different high-schools, training 120 youngsters and 120 teachers.
European raise-awareness campaign: more than 200 awareness actions developed by youngsters to prevent GBV in youth sexual-affective relationships through the The Social Coin methodology, a chain of actions with a social impact.
Transnational Impact Evaluation of the effectiveness of the pilot in changing social norms/behaviours of youngsters.
National and European dissemination campaign which includes the creation of a network of stakeholders and project advisors, national conferences and a European seminar.
The main results of the project are:

120 teachers increase their educational tools to prevent and identify GBV issues among their students.
Through The Social Coin, the project influences more than 6,000 young people in Europe.
105 stakeholders (6 public authorities) are directly involved through the awareness campaign.
600 stakeholders and 120 policy makers participate in the activities of the advocacy campaign
The project foresees a comprehensive impact evaluation with the following objectives:
