Project description: The main objectives of the Training Course are:
- Improving competences of participants in order to carry out actions for improving equality and fighting against gender violence, especially in young immigrant women and/or coming from ethnic minorities;
- Building a space for reflection between young people and youth workers on parameters, behaviours and attitudes that we have and that are originated from the patriarchal society and how they influence our daily lives;
- Exchanging experiences, good practices and methodologies among organizations and professionals that work for equality and against gender violence from eight different countries;
- Creating new tools and educational games to facilitate learning and to raise young people awareness on gender equality and violence prevention.

The methodology is based on non-formal education; content will be worked on a dynamic and funny way. It’s a “learning by doing” where trainers give some inputs, but the knowledge comes from the own knowledge and shared experiences of the participants.
