The partnership-building activity “Gender Connection” is designed to provide the opportunity for youth workers, project managers and youth leaders working with youth in Programme countries and Eastern Europe and Caucasus (EECA) to meet, to build the common understanding on gender issues, to discuss the challenges of gender equality in youth work, to discover how to build good quality projects within “Youth in Action” programme as well as to develop concrete ideas for future projects on the topic. As a long lasting effect, we hope to raise the participants level of gender-sensitivity.The partnership-building activity would last for 6 days (excluding travel), include 30 participants that are motivated to build projects together from altogether 17 organizations in Programme countries (Latvia, Poland, Bulgaria, Italy, Romania, Estonia and Turkey) and Eastern Europe and Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus). It would be held in Rustavi, Georgia. To assure the maximum effect of the project, apart from typical non-formal education learning methods (group work, discussions, role-plays, simulations, etc.), to understand better the challenges of gender issues in EECA region, during the project participants will also have the chance to meet with representatives from different gender/female organization as well as interact with the locals. The applicant and host of the project is Anti-Violence Network of Georgia, which has extensive experience in the field of promoting gender equality.
