8 March Every Day: Teaching Methods and Materials for Equal Opportunities

Expert meeting

The meeting is dedicated to diverse, active and targeted methods, teaching materials and tools to provide girls and boys with equal opportunities in education and later on in their professional and public life. The participants will get to know the methods for encouraging girls and boys to take part in in-depth discussions on reasons for inequality, learn about gender equality efforts, participate in school and after-school activities on an equal footing, and enrol in secondary (vocational) and higher education programmes on equal terms.

The meeting is aimed at professionals working in primary (the last triad), secondary and vocational schools and other educators: youth workers, NGO arts education programme managers, etc. Organisation-wide teams are welcome to attend.
