Project description: 

Forms of gender discrimination are diverse and differ in their severity. With this youth exchange, we would like to engage in a dialogue with young people about gender equality & gender roles in their social environment. We would like to challenge our young people with different perceptions of the role of man & woman in modern Europe & in its past. We see outdoor education as an extremely powerful tool for development, especially within international communities, it reflects on different values & can create a bridge between different social groups forming better mutual understanding.

Project Objectives:

  • To foster a gender-sensitive understanding of currently existing societal models & its inherent forms of discrimination;
  • To experience that a new society based on gender equality is possible;
  • To Challenge the perception of the structures within our society that undermine social inclusion or foster discrimination;
  • To create follow-up initiatives that promote gender equality in the sending communities Overcoming the stereotypes of different religious;
  • To build a broader understanding of what discrimination means & to start an intercultural & inter-religious dialogue;

Expected Participants: 

youth workers, young leaders, youth who are already active but aim to develop as youth leaders, concretely in the sphere of Gender equality, discrimination and understand concept Outdoor Education as a tool of non-formal education.
