Challenge 2 Change: Gender Perspectives in Europe

Training Course

27 June - 5 July 2016 | Yerevan, Armenia

Training Course aims at increasing the awareness of youth workers on gender equality concepts and perspectives in Europe as well as providing them with skills to develop good quality local and international projects focusing on promoting Gender Equality.
We believe it is important to enable youth workers to feel and reflect about the power of gender and gender roles by giving them space to discuss, debate and learn more about the topic that often remains undiscussed. That is why with this Training Course we would like to tackle these issues and look for solutions in our organizations and daily lives. We would like to develop and improve our participant’s knowledge and understanding on various concepts related to gender issues, analyze traditions, roles and perceptions of gender in different countries and societies. It's obvious that there will be huge differences as participants will come from different realities and different corners of Europe. The Training Course “Challenge 2 Change: Gender Perspectives in Europe” will bring together youth workers from the EU (The Netherlands, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom) and Neighboring Partner Countries (Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russian Federation, Ukraine). It will take place in Yerevan, Armenia. Through participation in different scale of activities as discussions, presentations, field visits and conference participants will exchange their skills and experiences on gender mainstreaming, gender discrimination, gender violence and gender perspectives in different parts of Europe. Participants will also learn about realities in Eastern Europe and South Caucasus, particularly in Armenia. The objectives of the Training Course are following: - To learn about gender equality concepts and perspectives in the European Union and Neighboring Partner countries; - To exchange experiences between youth workers and youth leaders on the difficulties to find a gender balance in terms of participation of women; - To develop participants knowledge and understanding on various concepts related to gender issues and emphasize the importance of gender equality in youth work; - To promote gender equality in youth work and international youth projects; - To facilitate networking process among participants and promote new common projects related to gender equality; - To develop the quality of support systems for youth activities and capability of youth organizations to create new partnerships. Developing further projects and strategies for the promotion of Gender Equality on European and national levels will be the main outcome for the organizations involved in the project. Furthermore, we will discover what has been done so far and the role of youth work and youth organizations in the promotion of Gender Equality.
