Nordic MenEngage conference – Making the invisible visible


The main activity of this project was a Nordic MenEngage Conference in Oslo, February 2017. NGOs and actors working with boys and men shared and spread knowledge on how to work practically with boys and men to stop violence against girls, women and others.

Workshops were designated to the knowledge exchange and development on other practical issues: how to counteract gender stereotypes, promote caring and the role of gender equality policy in the Nordic countries.

Projected outcomes of the conference were a strengthening of organizations and individuals in organizations working with boys and men and for gender equality – beyond specialist organizations. The conference encouraged the development of new measures and new projects that promote gender equality. An online publication with comments and highlights from the conference was published.
