GENDER EQUALITY STARTS NOW!
This project was motivated by the increasing need to combat against still existing problem of gender inequality. Although gender equality is a human right, we are still struggling to change the structural foundations of inequality. Gender equality is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making, and when the different behaviors, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favored.
The main focus of this project was discussing gender equality with partner countries and finding effective methods which will implement gender equality in youth work through networking.
This project was based on the idea that the use of non-formal education could be very efficient way to explore the meaning, importance and benefits of gender equality for our society.
The main project activity took place in Daruvar, Croatia, November 18-26, 2016, and it gathered 24 participants who were motivated and inspired to contribute to this project.
