Typ projektu:


Gender stereotypes and sexism are visible in all forms of social interaction: from public spaces to websites and (social) media. They often take the form of hate speech, both online and offline and both women and men, it disproportionately targets women and exacerbates gender inequality. Our aim is therefore to encourage the youths to take into consideration a gender-sensitive approach in their communication and take an active role in producing social change. This will be done through practical activities aimed at creating an online campaign to combat gender stereotypes and sexism.

Objectives

1. To provide a deeper understanding of the concepts of gender equality and GBV

2. To analyse the different forms of sexism and hate speech

3. To create communications strategies to raise awareness on the topic

4. To raise awareness on the existence of gendered media and societies;

5. To examine existing cases and analyse approaches on how to address gender culture in the media;

6. To foster young people’s critical thinking skills and encourage them to be actors of social change;

Youth exchange is for everyone who is interested in the topic and would like to travel and meet new people and cultures. Between the age of 18 – 30, leader can be over 30.

Participants will be from other countries in EU. There will be 5 participants from each country. 

Accommodation HERE and food will be provided and financed from the Erasmus + program during the whole project. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to 275 euro. Detailed information regarding financial procedures are written in FAQ and will be further explained with selected participants.

REGISTRATION IS POSSIBLE VIA THE FORM HERE

Registration is open until form is closed. Closed form mean we already finished choosing participants and therefore it is not possible to apply anymore.

Selected participants have to participate in a 30-minute online webinar before departure / date to be specified. Since all these projects are funded by the EU and since the goal of the EU and many projects is to encourage as many young people as possible to be interested in the EU and come to vote in next year’s European elections. That’s why we decided to hold a short 30-minute webinar about how the EU works and the European elections for all selected participants.
