It was first “kick-off meeting” of the long-term project which aim is: 

What this project seeks to foster and encourage is to advocate for gender equality by the use of media and by training youth workers on how they can better report, show case and promote gender equality through the biggest mediums and communication channels they use for their everyday job. Our project addresses gender as an equality issue, with positive approach to diminish the negative stereotypes and discrimination related to sex and/or gender.

Bringing together in a consortium various NGO’s across EU and WB, the project is the best spot for the youth workers to not only discuss the problematic and come up with suggestions for a better portray of gender issues, but also as a practical example that shall encourage each participants, partner association, collaborator and other beneficiaries to take the gender issues in consideration when drafting their communication strategies and while reporting their youth activities and/or any other project to the media.

Through our project we would like to tackle all three aspects with the aim of creating a baseline how youth work can advocate and support the better portrayal of gender in the media. As well as the project will seek to engage more young people and youth workers to bring up gender issues through social media channels and commit to fairly and ethically address the issues through their PR strategies in their associations.
The main aim of the project is to deeper explore the gender portrayal in order to address the most problematic issues while training youth workers, youth leaders and young people to act as advocates and reporters. The project shall seek to raise awareness of the public on the importance of gender roles as seen and portrayed in the mass media and the influence it has in daily lives of each of us.

Participants were from Albania Albania, Serbia Serbia, Montenegro Montenegro, Estonia Estonia, Macedonia North Macedonia, Hungary Hungary and Slovakia Slovakia.
