The project “Equalgen” engages multiple groups nationwide through combined activities of training, empowerment, awareness and art, emphasizing in young people (16-30 years old), as adolescence and the first years of adulthood are a period of formative experiences in terms of beliefs and way of life and gender expression.

Gender-based violence, with its significant social and economic costs, affects the lives of many people, mainly women and LGBTQI+ people. Partners will address issues of inequality, sexist attitudes and behaviours, and gender-based violence through group-specific methodologies.
