Project Description: “Mind the Gap” is a multi-measure project under the KA1 of the Erasmus+ programme. The project’s idea was developed in view of analysis done, were young people and youth workers showed lack of awareness about gender and sexuality-based violence and do not know enough on how its mechanisms work. Mind the Gap is a project were its objective is to raise awareness on many forms of discrimination and violence related to gender and sexuality that still prevail in our societies in Europe as well as Mediterranean Neighbouring countries, especially on gender issues and sexuality. The project will be in two phases;
Phase 1 the training course aims to develop the competences and knowledge of people working with youngsters in order to act as advocates of greater gender equality in their communities by using non-formal learning approach and tools.
Phase 2 will be a youth exchange where we will test the effectiveness of the tools and methodologies acquired during the TC phase during the cooperation and the participation to Salento LGBT Festival. Further information about the exchange will be issued at a later stage.
Looking forward to hear from you!!
