“Gender equity should not be seen narrowly as a women’s issue…, it is an issue that requires men and women to work together in search of solutions that are both practical and based on principle. Increasingly, those solutions will be neither acceptable nor sustainable if the equal rights, dignity and worth of men and women are not respected.” Koïchiro Matsuura, Director-General of UNESCO
Providing equal rights and opportunities for girls and boys, especially in education is necessary to realize the potential of all children equally. Our project focuses on improving the perception of equality in education. The participation and social inclusion of all members of society, regardless of gender, is important for a sustainable world. The healthy participation of girls and boys in all mechanisms of society and their existence as qualified / effective citizens in the decision-making processes are necessary for the development of democracy. It is also an indispensable prerequisite for social development. We know that for a sustainable life and a democratic society, the existence of women and girls, who constitute half of the population in social and economic life, is at the center of EU values. One of our priorities is to contribute to the creation of a democratic, equal and inclusive educational environment. In order to build a strong society, women and men should be empowered together.
Social gender equality in general and gender equality in education in particular is vital to achieve the 2030 sustainable development goals. It establishes the foundations for a peaceful and prosperous world in which girls and boys enjoy full equality and in which all legal, social and economic barriers to their empowerment are removed, within the framework of respect for human rights and human dignity. Today, not only girls but also boys are negatively affected by social and patriarchal stereotypes. For a sustainable society and economy, girls and boys need to be empowered together. Gender equality in education is defined as: “Equal treatment and equal opportunities in education; the elimination of stereotypes and social norms that are built for women and men and are the basis of inequalities; allowing each child to develop their personal skills and make choices without limitations drawn by these stereotypes”. Discrimination and inequality stemming from social stereotypes in education and in many areas of life could not be prevented. Gender discrimination, stereotypes in action and discourse are reconstructed by the media, family and especially schools. However, again, education is the key word to eliminate this inequality.
The project focuses on producing trainings and materials to ensure gender equality in education throughout its lifetime. Long and short term goals of “No Man No Woman / Just Human”;
• Creating a network of trainers and people working on gender equality education who have a multiplier effect.

The project has two main target groups. The first of these are educators / teachers. The second group is the students who are in the most important element of education (7-18 age group).
