Young people are the most important lever to "consolidate" them in difficult and often "grim" daily local or global reality. Information, awareness raising and mobilization of young people is a "guarantee" to ensure respect for human rights and prevent their violation.Human rights and freedoms are social conquest and can contribute substantially to the development of clear criteria and conditions for the rational and fair exercise of power, to "measure" the man, but also to contribute effectively to the investigation, questioning, critical but and reform.Education through forms of non-formal learning, new human rights, in practice, can be an important tool for awareness-raising and "stop" active citizen act, participate, intervene in contemporary social problems, defends universal human values adds, after all, and that a stone in the edifice of world cultural, social, economic, prosperity and justice. These were key objectives of the program.

Activity: Training in Cyprus (Pissouri, Limassol) of 36 youth workers (4 youth workers from Cyprus, Greece, Lithuania, Spain, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Latvia, Romania, Bulgaria

Why Digital Transformation?

The Covid 19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of the digital workspace, with the last two years marked by zoom calls, remote work, long-distance learning, and live-streaming. Following Covid-19, it is debatable if we should revert to our previous practices, as most businesses will likely be considerably more flexible. Simultaneously, data indicates that the majority of employers prefer part-time remote work and part-time in the office. Thus, the hybrid workspace is here to stay. As a result, digital capabilities are no longer optional; they are necessary. 

Our Objectives

  • Non-silencing (cultivation of self-confidence to express personal opinions)
  • Introduction to that empathy is directly linked with digital enterprise
  • Generation of new ideas about potential digital apps and websites: critical thinking & innovation
  • Digital competencies
  • Team-work
  • Problem-Solving
  • User-centricity (cultivating customer service in the digital enterprise through empathy)
  • Strategic thinking
  • Literary competencies
  • An understanding of the key people around the topic we are occupied with.
  • Understanding the risks and advantages of social media platforms

Duration: From 1st of March 2022 till 28 of February 2023 (12 months)
Period: from Tuesday 3rd till Tuesday 10th of January 2023 (6 days plus 2 travelling days)
Activity:Training Course at Portugal for 36 youth workers (4 from each organisation) which focus on women empowerment fighting social inclusion and opposing discrimination in all its aspects using educational tools.

Main Idea of the Project
This is a project fighting for social inclusion and opposing discrimination in all its aspects.Equality between men and women was a core tenet enshrined in the UN Charter in 1945. Yet, 75 years later, women and girls live in a world of widespread gender inequality. The past decades have seen important progress for women and girls. Overall, however, change has been uneven and incremental. At the current rate of change, the global gender gap will not close for another 100 years. As the Secretary-General warned, “change is coming at a pace that is too slow for the women and girls whose lives depend on it”. Over the next 10 years, the global community must act with urgency and determination to accelerate progress and achieve gender equality for all women and girls everywhere.
Meanwhile, violence against women remains a human rights abuse on a massive scale. One in five women globally has experienced sexual and/or physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner in the past year. While in the 1990s, laws against domestic violence were uncommon, today they are in place in around three quarters of countries. This is important progress, largely driven by feminist activism, although much more needs to be done to ensure implementation, and to provide services and access to justice for survivors.
