Study session "Exploring gender equality in environmental projects"
When: 5-12 March 2017
Where: European Youth Center, Strasbourg, France
Who: Youth and Environment Europe
YEE believes that the topic of gender equality is of great importance to all young Europeans. As our network consists of environmental organisations, very often the topic of inclusion and gender equality is not focused on or considered. We would like to introduce the change in the attitude of environmental youth organisations with this study session - by exploring the topic of gender in youth work and specifically in environmental projects. We would like to draw the attention of our member organisations that gender issues are always present in any kind of youth work. With this project we looked into ways on how to include gender perspective and gender mainstreaming in our future projects. We have done so by sharing our experience and with the support of external experts that are active in the field of gender equality.
Aims and objectives:
To explore the topic of gender equality and gender perspective in environmental youth projects and the ways of addressing this topic in work of environmental youth organisations.
The study session 'Exploring gender equality in environmental projects' was funded by and organised in co-operation with the Youth Department of the Council of Europe and European Youth Centre of the Council of Europe.
