You can already download the new publication called JOURNEY: Involving young people in education and action for gender equality and against gender-based violence developed within the New Genderation project. The publication is available in 4 languages – English, Spanish, Polish and Bulgarian.

This manual is a result of 2 years of working experience within the framework of the New Genderation project, undertaken by grassroot NGOs from Spain, Poland and Bulgaria, where we worked with more than 1600 young people, teachers and youth workers, engaging them in school activities, summer camps, awareness-raising campaigns and trainings. It was a very empowering and sometimes challenging experience of learning and growing, and that is why we felt the need to put it on paper and share it with the world.

In this manual you will find out about the successful approaches we took to engage with the topic, some concrete tools we created and used, tips and tricks on how to deal with different situations that you can come across and finally, many ideas on how to boost motivation and empower young people to take action. We hope that this manual will serve you as a tool to start working on these topics with young people or simply, that it will enrich your professional backpack with new ideas.

Yoko Ono and John Lennon once said “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” We started the journey of New Genderation project with a dream to see the world more just, more inclusive and free from violence. The more people join the path, the closer we are to making this dream a reality.
