ICT4YOUTHWORK and Shanarani project start a cross-dissemination collaboration

ICT4YOUTHWORK proudly announces that another project is added in the circle of cross-dissemination collaborations that have started some months ago. This time Myrsini Glinos, from eGovlab and ICT4YOUTHWORK project coordinator, and Vassiliki Zalavra, from Gov2u and responsible for project dissemination, had a fruitful discussion with Angela Pittl from Asociación Caminos and responsible for Shanarani project. Common activities for cross-dissemination and increase of projects‘ visibility have been discussed and mutually agreed.

The name of Shanarani has its origin from the indigenous people Purepecha. It means “walker” to indicate the union of the “feminine” and the “masculine”. Shanarani aims to build attractive methods of film/acting and music to raise awareness of the importance of gender equal opportunities for all and reducing gender related stereotyping.

Through exchange of good practices and a sharing of lessons learned in transnational cooperation, Shanarani will develop the following objectives:

  • to support youth workers adapting and promoting good practices in their work on gender issues and avoidance of stereotyping.
  • to enhance the participation of young people in developing innovative and motivational methodologies to overcome stereotypes on gender issues.
  • to involve young people and support youth workers through online tools such as digital handbooks and an online platform developed during the project.
  • to spread the project’s results at local, national and international level within relevant communities, stakeholders and decision makers and to raise awareness about gender issues and the avoidance of stereotyping.
