GET UP PHOTO CONTEST - Promote gender equality at school, at work, in the society

CALL

The contest #get_up project invites European citizens to think and express, through original shots, stereotypes and gender differences in education, training and career, imagining a future free from gender inequality. 3 photo subjects to call your shot combined with 3 challenges; #wasteoftalent, #genderpaygap, #worklifebalance. Participants can choose if run for 1 or more theme, sending up a maximum of 3 photos, 1 for subject, adding a short text in order to describe their own pictures.

 

DEADLINE

Ending: April, 30th

 

THEME

#wasteoftalent: Children are influenced by stereotypical attitudes and unconscious bias, from an early age, which in many cases prevents them from being the people they really are. Stereotypes must not hold back ambition. Teaching or being an apprentice in engineering, construction or IT should be perceived as perfectly comfortable choices for everyone, as should careers in social care and hairdressing, or teaching these.

#genderpaygap: The gender pay gap is the average difference between a man’s and a woman’s remuneration, taking into account differences in hours worked, occupations chosen, education and job experience.

#worklifebalance: Proper prioritization between work (career and ambition) and lifestyle (health, pleasure, leisure, family). Because of the social norms surrounding each gender role, and how the organization views its ideal worker, men and women handle the work–life balance differently. While women are increasingly represented in the work force, they still face challenges balancing work and home life.

 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

To participate you must be a European citizen, apply to a call launched by partners, being over 18 years of age, owning the rights of the photos that you want to submit and strictly adhere to the constest’s norms.

The campaign foresees billposting of the winners’ photos in the cities and towns of the country’s network (Italy, Bulgaria, Belgium, France, Lithuania, Malta), coverage on social and institutional channels, and press campaign in the various partners’ countries to promote gender equality in education, training and at the workplaces as much as possible. The name of the winners will be mentioned or awarded during formal labor and culture events in various European cities. The photographs and their explanations will be related to each other in an ideal dialogue in order to talk about and promote gender equality.

LDA Mariupol launches the project "Bridges of Trust"

LDA Mariupol is warming up the engines. On 15 March, the LDA from Ukraine launched the project “Bridges of Trust- building of a constructive dialogue between representatives of civil society and local authorities”. It is an important achievement, in the words of the Mariupol team, realized with the support of their partners: NGO “Center for Civic Initiatives SKHIDNA BRAMA”, Mariupol City Council supported by UCBI – Українська ініціатива зміцнення громадської довіри#USAIDUkraine, #USAIDУкраїна.

The aim of the project is to train in communication tools, create a platform of respectful dialogue and improve the perception of the citizens on inclusive decision making.

The problem in the community

Mariupol is the largest city in Ukrainian controlled Donbas, but it has also been the most infrastructurally isolated and one of the most politically volatile. Local elections in Mariupol in 2015 while contentious, resulted in an old guard, yet reform-minded municipality administration, which has introduced fresh approaches to municipal management. Additionally, the potential of activists in common problem solving and watchdog role has been growing during the last three years, which has made them relevant stakeholders in the community development process.

However, there is unfortunately a lack of understanding and cooperation between Mariupol activists and the city administration. On one hand, local administration does not articulate clearly their decisions to the community; on the other hand, local activists blame the city administration without a clear understanding of the situation. This situation results in tensions, often fueled by journalists. According to the results of the latest survey made by GFK, the number of people in Mariupol perceiving an improvement in inclusive decision-making has decreased (43% in December 2017, compared to 51% in April 2017).

A solution: Bridges of Trust project

In order to solve this problematic condition, the establishment of a platform for constructive dialogue to discuss the city’s development prospects, as well as through the development of key principles and methodologies for efficient communication will contribute to mutual understanding, trust and productive engagement between the activists and city government. Active residents will be involved in the dialogue with the authorities through direct participation in training programs and events on topics relevant to the community, as well as with the possibility of information dissemination through modern telecommunication technologies (online streaming, blogging, etc.).

How will the training work and how to apply

Professional trainers and experts will teach participants the most up-to-date tools for effective communication, moderation, blogging and fact-checking. They invite representatives of civic society, groups of citizens and professionals to register to the following link (in Russian).
They will select 30 civic activists and 10 representatives of Mariupol local authorities.

Empowering migrant women and strengthening local communities in Europe

The kick-off meeting of the project WEMIN (Migrant Women Empowerment and Integration) was held on 28 February and 1 March in Athens, Greece.

***
Funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund of the European Union, the 2-year project aims at implementing and promoting a pioneering integration model for migrant/refugee women of all ages in the communities involved.

WEMIN is led by the Hellenic Open University (Greece), and involves other eight partners from 8 countries throughout the EU. The project activities will address social, educational and professional aspects of inclusion.

The project will empower migrant and refugee women to become protagonists of the life of the communities they live in, and act as multipliers within their families and circles. But the objective is way more ambitious – by promoting a close interaction between women of the host and migrant societies, stereotypes on both sides will be tackled, challenging existing narratives on migration and strengthening the very communities involved.

A number of trainings, mentoring sessions, peer learning and art activities are planned within the project – many occasions to stimulate dialogue, intercultural relations and exchanges. An online platform will also be used to foster peer-learning and exchange.

Broad dissemination of activities and exchange of experiences all over Europe will reach stakeholders involved in migrant integration (immigration & asylum services, social services providers, NGOs, entities involved in training and supporting migrants and refugees) as well as citizens, raising their awareness about cross-cultural dialogue.

Project partners:

  • Hellenic Open University, Greece – Lead partner
  • ALDA – European Association For Local Democracy, France
  • Folkuniversitetet Stiftelsen Vid Lunds Universitet, Sweden
  • Ifa Akademie, Germany
  • Oxfam Italia Intercultura Societa Cooperativa, Italy
  • Associação Renovar a Mouraria, Portugal
  • Southside Partnership DLR, Ireland
  • Colectic, Spain
  • Olympic Training and Consulting Ltd, Greece
