Equality: NOT optional

Training Course

16-24 September 2018 | Sępólno Krajeńskie and Toruń, Poland

With this training course we wish to remind youth workers that in order to be effective, fair, inclusive and contribute to creation of society with greater equality, gender dimension has to be taken into account during any youth work activity.
ATTENTION! This will bring together 26 youth workers, educators from Latvia, Hungary, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Estonia, Italy, Croatia and Poland. With this call we are only looking for additional participants from Poland(3), Latvia(3), Hungary(3), Italy(3), Estonia(3) and Spain(1). Youth workers need to realize that gender inequality is not something far away from their reality, but male-dominated, patriarchal and hetero-normative principles consciously or unconsciously influence all of us and young people in particular in their identity-making process. Young people often find it difficult to fit in traditional gender perceptions and roles and neither of the genders benefits from this robust system. Youth workers should play more active role to support young people to deal with these challenges. That's why the objectives of this TC have been defined as follow: -Developing awareness and understanding about various concepts related to gender and how it connects to promoting common values in Europe and daily youth work reality. -Understanding the mechanisms of discrimination and violence and how it affects individuals and society – with special focus on gender and how it affects young people. -Sharing realities when it comes to respect for diversity and inclusion in the represented countries and regions paying special attention to aspects of gender equality and violence against women. -Exploring role of youth workers and power of NFL to promote positive social change and developing skills of applying NFL tools to fight against violence and discrimination based on gender. -Planning and implementing concrete follow-up activities to promote gender equality, diversity and inclusion at local level. THE LINK TO THE ON-LINE APPLICATION FORM (as well as everything you should know about this TC) you can find in the Infopack that is attached to this call.
