Play Safe

Play Safe is an educational game about online gender-based violence.

Play Safe aims to inform and raise awareness among adolescents and young people about online gender-based violence and harassment.

The app, through a series of interactive games, provides children and youth a learning opportunity to recognise online gender-based violence, whether it is happening to them or to someone close to them. It cultivates empathy and solidarity by inviting them to put themselves in the other person’s shoes, highlighting the importance of zero tolerance to gender-based violence.

The Play Safe digital game is also a useful tool for parents and teachers to become aware of new forms of gender-based violence and to be ready to support children when they ask for help.

The app is available for FREE in Greek, English, and Farsi. 

Download for Android operating systems on Google Play and for IOS on Apple Store.
