Gender stereotypes continue to exist even today at all levels of society and for all age groups, particularly children come into contact with early gender stereotypes through TV series, advertising, picture books and other education and training material that somehow affect their perception of how male and female should behave. That is why AMFI is promoting an exchange program for young people around gender based non-discrimination and equal opportunities for men and women for 60 participants between 16 and 30 years old.
The aim is to promote rights, equality and the values of non-discrimination. The project wants to achieve these goals through innovative methods and non-formal education, pushing the beneficiaries of this project to think about and assess whether the rights of girls and boys are equally guaranteed and dispelling some myths about what men, women, children and teenagers can or cannot do.
The project involves an exchange between young people from the following countries: Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Greece, Serbia, Romania, Macedonia.
The experience will be certified by the project leader in cooperation with the whole partnership through the Youth Pass.
