Інститут Суспільних Ініціатив оголошує набір учасників на міжнародний проект Road to Gender Equality, що відбудеться 6-12 травня у Львові та 23-28 червня у Магдебурзі (Німеччина).

About the project:

Discrimination based on sex, gender identity and sexual orientation is widespread across the world. To stop the propagation of stereotypes and attitudes that reinforce discrimination and violence is thus important to encourage the future generation to consider a gender sensitive approach and integrate a gender equality perspective, in order to produce social change.

This project will give opportunity to 22 young people from Germany and Ukraine to increase awareness on gender issues and to support them in playing an active role in promoting gender equality by using variety of creative methods.

  • increasing the knowledge on gender equality issues;
  • examining existing cases and analyzing approaches on how to address gender mainstreaming and gender culture in the media;
  • introducing to young people creative methods for emracing social change in their communitites;
  • encouraging youth to play a key role as media advocates, and cultivate a media world free of gender discrimination;
  • promotion of intercultural dialogue between young people of Germany and Ukraine

Throughout the project we will use such methods as storytelling, sensory labyrinth theatre and videomaking as tools for countering and decounstructing gender stereotypes and gender roles.
