How are you dealing with gender equality in youth work settings? Are these just words and narratives that open calls want from us or is it something that you really think about and integrate in your working environment?

This training course is for you if you would like to step out of the declarative words and start to work on gender equality in everyday youth work and create a document that will help you work with the topic in a meaningful way in the future. 

The training will also be a part of the international conference on the Importance of Gender equality, where there will also be a space for networking with several Slovenian organizations and getting to know the programme Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values, which places Gender equality and Gender Mainstreaming in high priority. 

The training course will be implemented with non-formal education methodologies, that acquire active participation, explorative and experiential learning and will bring you concrete results (you will be guided in creating the guidelines for gender equality in your organisation). 

Main trainers of the activity will be the Head of education at PiNA – Maja Drobne and the president of Ljubljana Pride Association – Simona Muršec.



Dates: Arrival day will be on 19th of March, departure day on 25th of March 2023

Location: Youth center Brežice, Slovenia
