Training Course

19-25 March 2023 | Brežice , Slovenia

How are you dealing with gender equality in youth work settings? Are these just words and narratives that open calls want from us or is it something that you really think about and integrate in your working environment?

This training course is for you if you would like to step out of the declarative words and start to work on gender equality in everyday youth work and create a document that will help you work with the topic in a meaningful way in the future. 

The training will also be a part of the international conference on the Importance of Gender equality, where there will also be a space for networking with several Slovenian organizations and getting to know the programme Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values, which places Gender equality and Gender Mainstreaming in high priority. 

The training course will be implemented with non-formal education methodologies, that acquire active participation, explorative and experiential learning and will bring you concrete results (you will be guided in creating the guidelines for gender equality in your organisation). 

Main trainers of the activity will be the Head of education at PiNA – Maja Drobne and the president of Ljubljana Pride Association – Simona Muršec.

PiNA is an association, established in 1998 at the initiative of the Open Society Institute, which has
been promoting socially responsible practices and strengthening the culture of dialogue for over 20
years. Since its establishment, PiNA has served as a point for meeting, providing information,
exchange, connection and collaboration in the field of societal challenges. In 1998, PiNA was the first
internet café in Slovenia, and by 2016, it has operated as a multimedia and youth centre, member of

developed, some even presented in the association’s 240 m2 premises in the heart of Koper. The
