Participants from the UK, Georgia, Morocco and Italy have joined us for our ErasmusPlus RESOLVE: Equity Youth Exchange in London. Through different activities, participants got to know each other better, as well as found out more about the project and its objectives. In addition, through the Micro-Teach Exercise, the participants have increased their awareness and understanding of Gender Equity. by Emina Hasanagić. During the second part of the day, they participated in a Scavenger Hunt in London.
During the second day, of the RESOLVE: Equity London Youth Exchange participants went on the self-guided trail, to discover extraordinary women who have lived through East London’s vibrant and diverse history – and shaped it too. This Heritage Trail is a project run by the East End Women’s Museum. Participants also went on a boat ride on the Regent’s Canal organised as part of the East End Canal Festival.
During the third day participants discussed social intolerance in their own countries. They have shared their own experience and issues faced by people in their country. They were introduced to different socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities, and attributes that refer to gender like ‘masculine’, ‘feminine’, ‘Gender Expression’, and Intersectionality among others.
During the fourth day participants visited Europe House and got an understanding of the European Union and how it works as well as the values of the EU and the European Parliament. During the second part of the session, participants learned more about the proportion of women in the European Parliament and prepared proposals on what more can be done to increase gender equality. This workshop was delivered by Involver.
During the final day of the Erasmus+ RESOLVE: Equity project, participants planned a social action campaign to raise awareness about the importance of gender equality. We would like to thank all the participants for their participation, commitment and inputs they have provided during our Erasmus Plus RESOLVE: Equity youth exchange in London. We hope we meet again soon.
