Gender Equality from Principle to Empowerment
addresses mainly two priorities:
- social inclusion
- promoting the acquisition of skills and competences
Gender equality is an objective of the 2030 Agenda of the European Union. It means equality between women and men and empowerment of women and girls. As it has not been achieved yet is a source of social exclusion for women affecting their opportunities in every day life. The mechanisms of gender inequality are complex and start with education.
GEPE intends to contribute to:
a) make male and female students understand how and why women and men do not have the same opportunities today in European countries,
b) give students an opportunity to act at their level against gender inequality,
c) include students in collaborative work with European partners whatever their financial or learning difficulties.
PROMOTE THE ACQUISITION OF SKILLS AND COMPETENCES
a) develop problem solving skills working on a common problem with students from different cultural, social and economic backgrounds,
b) develop communication skills: foreign languages, ICT, social networking, advertising,
c) develop collaborative skills: team work, management, results, assessment,
d) develop competences: in Art, in Literature, in Maths, History and many other fields
e) develop the ability to work at trans-disciplinary level,
f) develop a competence to adapt to the diversity of contexts within the European Union helping job mobility.
GEPE is offering our students the opportunity to:
a) participate in a practical, three-year experience with other students to analyse the difficulties and the achievements of education to gender equality,
b) participate in seminars to assess the results of the experience, discuss methodology and work out recommendations,
c) develop abilities to work with other professionals outside their specialist area, their school or their country.
