Gender Education

Through this programme, we examine the social and cultural understanding of the gender concept from an intersectional perspective. Through empowerment, capacity strengthening, awareness-raising and advocacy in our training, we aim at creating learning opportunities for young and adult learners on the crucially and important role the society and its culture plays in the construction and the maintenance of gender norms, role, relations, expressions, and sexual identities.

 

Objective 

In the field of gender, sexuality and cultures, we aim to examine the makings of masculinity, femininity and sexuality from a typical, conventional representation of gender expressions and sexual identities in a multicultural society. In the field of sexual and gender-based violence prevention, we aim at fostering primary preventive and reponse measures through gender literacy by addressing social norms or behaviours that tolerate gender-based violence through intervention. 


Overall goal 

Gender has impact on nearly every aspect of life and does play a major role in the most of today's crucial discussions on equal opportunities and rights. Our interdisciplinary training courses prepare youth workers and youth to examine the complex constructions of gender throughout history and time as well as in different cultural contexts and social processes, so that they can contribute in drawing attention to the impact of gender diversity on the broader community.

Our approach 

To facilitate the analysis on gender, sexuality and culture, our training focus on interventions capable of dismantling the typical, conventional representation of gender expressions and sexual identities from an intersectional perspective. To foster response and preventive measures to the effects of sexual and gender-based violence, our training focus on personal aspect of gender-based violence by drawing attention to its victims and survivors to its impact on the society.

Achieving impact 

Our interdisciplinary training courses are gender-problem-oriented and focus on facilitating youth and youth workers' empowerment in generating new ideas, methods and solutions towards cultural and gender diversity. Therefore, youth organisations are implementing gender-oriented training in their works though a gender sensitive and participatory approach to forster gender literacy skills as an essential aspect to prevent, expose and respond to gender-based problems.
