EQUAL_GEN event, 19/4, 6 pm
We invite you to discuss the ways in which we can work with Gen Z for a world of gender justice.

Diotima Center invites you to the event “Talking with Gen Z about gender equality”, on Friday 19 April 2024, 6-9pm, at AKTO amphitheatre, Evelpidon 11A, Athens.

After two years of successful actions under the EQUAL_GEN project, we invite you to discuss the ways in which we can work with Gen Z for a world of gender justice.

Gathering a wealth of experience through 41 youth awareness actions and 15 teacher trainings, involving 900+ people aged 16-30 and 440 teachers, we seek to share with you our thoughts and suggestions on how we can foster a culture of consensus, with the young generation as a key dissemination agent.
