Nordic cooperation in equality work with a focus on masculinity


The project will deepen Nordic cooperation within methods, material development and networking within gender equality work with a focus on masculinity.

This will begin with a two-day inter-Nordic meeting on 3-4 December arranged by Ekvalita and DareGender. The meeting will kick start the method and material development to support work within the Nordic nations on a broad front.

We are inviting around 20 representatives from various organisations that already carry out important work relating to masculinity around the Nordic region. We are carrying out concrete and dynamic work in connection with issues such as violence, models for bringing up young people, sex education and discussions on pornography and masculinity.

Extremely valuable work is already being carried out in the Nordic region to create a more empathic, responsible and mature model for manliness, and we aim to use the funding granted by NIKK to take this work to new levels within the Nordic nations.
