Gender equality both as a value and as a goal is enshrined in various European documents and legal provisions. Yet, the pay gap between men and women remains wide and the percentage of women engaged in politics and business in high-ranking positions remains dismal. The promotion of gender equality is considered as a precondition for achieving sustainable social and economic development.

*

The international seminar aims to have a broad discussion on the quintessential nature of gender and its role in European societies, provide youngsters engaged in NGO activities basic information about the gender perspective and offer practical advice how gender equality can be promoted. Another important objective is to get a European perspective on the issue by getting an insight on the evolution of the perception of gender, by comparing different approaches and achievements to promote equality.

The seminar will also provide a range of leisure activities in the city of Bratislava enjoying the rich European history and culture this region has to offer.
