Activity of UMO.se
Aims and objectives
- UMO is a national web-based youth-friendly clinic for young people aged 13 to 25 years. The purpose of the website is to make it easier for young people to find relevant, current and quality-assured information about sex, health and relationships. The site provides a Q&A e-mail service to visitors.
- UMO is dedicated to increasing and enhancing empowerment and equality (and gender equality) in young people's lives.
- UMO aims to provide information and possibilities for reflection through which young people can influence their own lives - at home, in relationships, in school or at work. UMO believes that by knowing one's legal rights and obligations, one is better equipped to make informed decisions. UMO applies a critical social gender norms approach.
- UMO defined 2011 as a special year to try to increase interactions with boys and young men, and has run special campaigns to reach that goal.
