24 June – 3 July

The Regional Studies Center (RSC) organized a Youth exchange on Gender issues entitled “Have Your Say!”, which brought together 40 young people from 8 European countries, including Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Armenia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova. "Have Your Say" was mainly aimed at promoting the gender sensitivity of the society by using creative tools and methods. The objectives of the project included sharing knowledge and skills on gender issues based on success stories and failures, revealing the gender stereotypes, discussing and debating on effective tools and methods to promote gender equality and prevent positive discrimination, finding out the opportunities and obstacles for the gender campaigns, encouraging the participants to initiate and take part in gender related campaigns.

The exchange was based on non formal education tools and methods, including discussions, debates, video and photo workshops, group works, team-building and evaluation sessions, outdoor activities, text-writing, etc..

The project was funded in the frameworks of the European Commission's Youth in Action programme.
