Put on Your Gender Glasses!

Put on Gender Glasses!

The project aimed to empower youth workers to question their personal gender assumptions, to apply gender dimension to their youth work and youth activities, and to contribute to more inclusive and gender just societies through non-formal education methods.

The training course took place from the 25th of October till the 1st of November 2017 in Estonia.

 

 

The project objectives were:

  • To compare how gender norms may differ according to context;
  • To encourage reflection on gender assumptions that we may be not aware of;
  • To identify challenges young people face in relation to gender equality;
  • To examine the roles gender may play in youth work as well as the importance of gender equality and gender mainstreaming in youth work, projects and organizations;
  • To share specific tools and insights for a gender-sensitive approach to human rights education and youth work;
  • To examine different expressions of gender-based violence in youth contexts;
  • To train youth workers on raising awareness on the issue and, as a result, to mobilize and involve more young people in the prevention of gender-based violence;
  • To promote the core EU values of respect for human rights, gender equality, non-violence, social cohesion and diversity as well as cooperation under the Erasmus+ programme.

The training course brought together 26 youth workers and youth leaders from 13 EU and neighbourhood countries: Armenia, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Turkey, and Ukraine.
