Sexual harassment and violence may occur in any environment, for example in the social media. The Finnish National Agency for Education has published a package containing instructions for students on how to recognise, prevent and intervene in sexual harassment and violence. The package includes a brochure and a poster.

The brochure also explains where young people can receive support and assistance if they have experienced sexual harassment or violence. The brochure is aimed especially at students in general upper secondary education and in vocational education and training, but it is also suitable for use in comprehensive school in grades 7–9, for example as part of health education and other school activities that promote welfare and equality. 

You can download the brochure from this page. The brochure is available in Finnish, Swedish, English, North Sámi, Inari Sámi, Skolt Sámi, Russian, Arabic, Somali, Kurdish and Farsi. In addition to the brochure, a poster with more concise information has also been published. The poster is available in Finnish, Swedish and English.
