Genderalizing: management of diversity in gender
Start date: Aug 1, 2012,
"Genderalizing: management of diversity in gender" is a Training Course to be held in Krakow, Poland, between the 20th and the 28th of October 2012, that will bring together motivated youth workers and youth leaders active in the third sector from 10 Programme countries.It will create a non-formal space for exploring and discussing gender issues, and analyzing the diverse manners how the related subjects are treated in our countries and in the European space in general. Hence, we envisage to create an environment where youngsters can discover, reflect and debate about topics such as gender equality, sexual-based discrimination, homosexuality or the role of women.We find this topic to be extremely connected to the host country, one marked by traditional religious-oriented values of family and, notably, the idea of “woman-mother”, but on the other hand a pioneer since it is one of the few countries where homosexuality has never been illegal. We will then explore the features of the European Strategy for equality between women and men 2010-2015 and strive to discover what can and shall be done in order raise awareness for the importance of the conflict-ridden topic of gender equality and gender stereotypes.Afterwards, thanks to the choice over non-formal education methods, we intend to actively involve the participants in the diverse working moments, sharing opinions, cooperating amongst themselves, learning from each other and ultimately conceiving project ideas together. Hence, we expect to generate an experience of great personal and professional growth with significant development of skills and competences that promote and facilitate the preparation and realization of projects and activities, at international or local level, on gender issues by providing examples of the tools as well as the methods which may be used for the realization of such projects.
