Digitally Together for Gender Equality project aims to empower 336 young people aged 18-25 from 7 counties (Bulgeria, Uganda, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Cyprus and Spain) to become skillful digital advocates and change makers for equal and inclusive societies. It addresses the intersection of gender and technology in the youth sector – two areas that have contributed significantly for major societal gaps and will most probably have further implications for the widening the disparity among men and women across the world.
Project consortium objectives.
· • Increase the capacity including investment into human resources and ICT facilities of 7 youth organizations over a 3-year period to provide quality and sustainable digital experiential learning opportunities for young people with predominantly vulnerable background;
· • Encourage 21-century youth intercultural dialogue and diversity awareness via online accessible and user-friendly digital tools and platforms;
· • Foster digital and soft skills development of 336 young people to boost their future civic engagement and employability options;
· • Promote horizontally active citizenship and common democratic society values like freedom, tolerance and equality in diverse youth-led communities through NFE and experiential learning;
· • Contribute to boosting international cooperation opportunities between EU and Sub-Saharan Africa; The consortium will run over 3 years and offer 2 ToT for 70 youth workers, 4 virtual exchanges for 336 young people and 4 large-scale digital events gathering a community of min 1000 interested third parties at national level of the education, training and youth sectors across the EU and Sub-Saharan Africa.
· The proposal is in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment), the Treaty of Lisbon (need to encourage participation of young people in democratic life) plus gender equality and youth participation in civil society is key for the EU Youth Strategy 2027.
