#Speak4NO #Challenge: Using creativity to ‘speak’ against sexual violence


Sharing messages across Europe on how to React, Act and Prevent

Sexual Violence is not just some random news on TV but a real life-threatening phenomenon around the world. Sexual Violence does not recognize gender, color or age and can happen anywhere at any time. The #Speak4NO Challenge aims to raise awareness on how to React, Act and Prevent Sexual Violence.


Create your own original powerful message against sexual violence and post it on your personal social media account. Then challenge three of your friends, by tagging them on your post, to do the same and send their own message. Use your imagination and creativity to prepare your message which will strongly touch people’s heart around the world.



  • Create your message: Your message, in English or your native language, should be in the form of an an image e.g. poster, drawing, text, photo, selfie. Be innovative, creative and original.

  • Post your message on your social media account (either on facebook, Instagram and or Twitter) and tag the page of the project.
