"MoveON - Moving Towards Gender Sensitive Youth Work in Europe" is a
long term project which envisages 2 activities - a Training Course for Youth
Workers and a Youth Exchange for Young People. Both activities will be
targeting youth workers and young people based in the countries of the
European Union (Sweden, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Greece) and the
Neighboring countries (Armenia, Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine).
The long term project "MoveON - Moving Towards Gender Sensitive
Youth Work in Europe" aims at increasing the awareness of youth
workers, youth leaders and young people about gender perspectives and
challenges in Europe, providing participants with skills to develop good
quality projects and non-formal activities locally and internationally under
The project aims to develop and improve the knowledge and understanding of youth workers
involved in the project on various gender-related concepts, analyze
traditions, roles and perceptions of gender in different European countries
This training course will take place from October 3rd to October 11th.
The activities we want to carry out are directly linked to the profile of the participants.
Are you interested in topics like gender equality or LGBTQ Rights?
The Training Course is targeting 30 (4 from each country) youth workers and youth trainers aged 18-
40, who either already work on the topics of gender equality, gender
mainstreaming, women empowerment and LGBTQ rights or are
interested to start working on the topic.
Additionally, the selected participants should be interested in confronting
gender-based violence and gender stereotypes in their home countries
and would be ready to transfer their gained knowledge to the youth in
their organizations and countries.
Some of our goals:
- Providing space for learning about gender issues by sharing and comparing the realities in the European Union and the Neighboring Partner countries.
- Promoting gender sensitivity in youth work and gender-sensitive approach in the participating organizations.
- Facilitating networking among participants and promoting development of joint projects under Erasmus+ promoting gender equality;
100% of the total travel expenses will be reimbursed, as long as they are within the travel budget! (For example, in Cyprus, the travel budget is 275 Euro)
