The EquAlley project is a 24 month school education project funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Commission with partners from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Netherlands and Poland. It sets out to challenge gender stereotypes, social injustice and gender-based violent behaviour, particularly in public spaces, in youngsters. This will be done by promoting and encouraging youngsters to re-think gender roles, norms and stereotypes through a blended-learning course offered in institutions working with youth (schools, youth centers, sports clubs...).
- prevent male individuals from becoming perpetrators while transforming them into male allies;
- strengthen female individuals with regards to self-confidence and -efficacy while encouraging them in finding ways to cope with street harassment (and sexual violence in general);
- break gender roles, norms & stereotypes for men, women and all genders that usually fall out of the frame, thereby promoting gender sensitive, non-violent and inclusive awareness and attitudes;
- enhance exchange among youngsters to decrease stereotypes and discrimination.
