ABOUT THE PROJECT
After a successful implementation of the project “Fair Play” in 2015 and “Fair Play 2” in 2016, IJGD has decided to develop a follow-up project to continue working with gender equality as one of the most important topics in regards to respect of human rights. This project will address more specific issues in our society, which also affect International Voluntary Service, namely power structures and inequality in the access to rights and power distribution in the society. Furthermore, it would explore the effects of unequal power distribution in politics, economy and at home, summing up the overall image of the position of woman in the society and therefore in the voluntary projects themselves.
Fair Play 3.0 will consist of 3 activities, which will take place in Germany and Serbia:
- Introductory training on gender and power relations in the society, took place in Veliki Gaj in Serbia 8-16 November 2018, including participants from all the partner countries involved. The training is supposed to provide input on history of women rights, sexual minority rights and human rights and to provide participants with the basic competences in activism, solidarity, European values.
- Training for trainers to take place in Kasstelaun, Germany, 8-16 January 2019. It will bring together at least 75% of participants who have taken part in the basic training (A1) and provide them with competences on how to multiply gained knowledge, advocate for human rights and womens rights and train other young people in local and national level.
The focus of training for multipliers will be on:
– Developing project development and project management skills
– Feminism, LGBTQ rights and Intersectionality
– Human rights and safe/brave space
– Empowerment of youth workers’ well-being
- Evaluation meeting will be hosted in Halle, Germany, 21-24 March 2019, as a 2 days long event, bringing participants and the representatives who were in charge of the project from each organization, to discuss the process and sum up the outcomes of the project.
Ideally, participants who apply for this project, should attend all three events, but not necessary.
The mail aim is to empower work-camp leaders and youth workers involved in International Voluntary Service to
deal with gender-based discrimination and understand better the concepts of power within IVS projects, as well their own lives, by providing them with necessary knowledge, ideas and tools.
