Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a project called “FEMPOWER Fostering Gender Equality through Youth Empowerment and Gender Mainstreaming in Youth Work” a Training Course that which will take place from 22nd until 30th July 2017 in Yerevan, Armenia and a Study Visit on 11th until 16th September in London, United Kingdom.
European Union and the UK deserve credits for having tackled gender issues for a long time, however, gender equality situation both in the EU, the UK and the Neighboring countries, especially in Eastern Europe and Caucasus remains unsatisfactory. Conservative, discriminating values are hard to tackle, with clearly defined roles for men and women, gender stereotypes and issues with the expression of gender identity and sexual orientation. It is very important to enable youth workers and young leaders to feel and reflect about the power of gender and gender roles by giving them space to discuss, debate and learn more about the topic that often remains without discussion.
That is why with this Training Course we would like to tackle these issues and look for solutions in our organizations and daily lives. We would like to develop and improve our participant’s knowledge and understanding on various concepts related to gender issues, analyze traditions, roles and perceptions of gender in different countries and societies. It's obvious that there will be huge differences as participants will come from different realities and different corners of Europe.
