Project description

YEE believes that the topic of gender equality is of great importance to all young Europeans. As our network consists of environmental organizations, 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 organizations with this study session - to explore the topic of gender in youth work and specifically in environmental projects. We would like to draw the attention of our member organizations that gender issues are always present in any kind of youth work. With this study session we will explore the ways on how to include gender perspective and gender mainstreaming in future projects. We will explore this topic together as well as meet experts on the topic of gender equality.

Aims and objectives:

The aim:

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 objectives:

The participants will share the realities and experience of gender issues in various European countries;
The participants will learn more about gender mainstreaming, especially in youth work (what it is, why it is needed, how it can be done);
The participants will share their experience in organizing environmental projects and explore them from the gender perspective;
The participants will discover and think of the ways of introducing gender mainstreaming in environmental youth projects;
The participants will work on the ways how environmental projects can tackle gender issues.

In this project we would like to explore what gender equality means for youth organisations, how to bring gender perspective to environmental youth projects and which benefits it will bring. This project will be the starting point for YEE to incorporate the gender perspective in all our projects.
