Gender and Media!

October 2, 2022 - October 10, 2022

Training course for Youth Work(er)s 


| 02-10 October 2022 | Diyarbakir, Turkey

What is this project about?

Gender equality means equal visibility, empowerment, responsibility, and participation of all genders in the spheres of public life, including the media. Though having a big potential in promoting gender equality, the media still acts as a tool that creates and maintains gender stereotypes and plays a big role in gender and cultural-based discrimination.

How can we respond to this as youth workers? With these training courses we want to uncover the role of media and individuals in achieving the fundamental value of gender equality and create awareness at the local, regional and international levels.

During the training we will discuss,analyse, understand and propose new approaches and views to those subjects using new digital media, creative activities, social and multimedia tools.

Two training courses for youth workers in Diyarbakir, Turkey and in Vienna,Austria. We invite youth workers living in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Turkey to come together from 01-08 October 2022 in Diyarbakir to discuss with and learn from each other about gender and media.

Logistics and financial conditions

Simple life: We will stay in a guest house of Youth and Change Association in the city-centre of Diyarbakir. You can find more details about the accomodation in the facebook page: Diyarbakir Guest House | Facebook

The food will be provided by our team in the guest house. Please tell us in the application form if you have specific food intolerances, diets or allergies that you would like to communicate.

Money, money, money: We can cover all essential costs of the program (including food,

travel costs up to a maximum amount per country, visa costs, accommodation and content) through a European project grant by Erasmus+.

Sustainable travels?: We ask you to come to this project through more sustainable means of transport rather than flying (e.g. train/bus), if somehow possible. We will give you more support on how you can reach the venue once you are accepted to the project.

Who can participate?

Living in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain or Turkey. We unfortunately cannot make exceptions due to our funding.

People with fewer opportunities prioritised. We will prioritise applications by people with disabilities and chronic health conditions, migrants, people of colour, LGBTQIA+ people and working-class youth. We will do our best to make the project a safer space and take the individual needs of the participants into account. Unfortunately, the accommodation is not accessible by wheelchair.

No previous experience with the topic needed. You are welcome in this exchange even if you have no experience discussing gender or media with people around you.

Vaccinated or recovered ideally. At the moment, there are no entrance rules around COVID-19 anymore. But due to the constantly changing situation, this might change and then we would inform you.
