Sami women and sustainable development goal 5: Strategies for gender equality

With the objectives of gender equality and diversity in Sápmi, the project aimed to develop the gender equality policy for Sami people and the majority societies in order to strengthen democracy through participation and to contribute to knowledge and changes in attitudes.

The project had two objectives:

1. Creation of a community for discussion about the modern Sami woman’s needs and a platform for motivation and developing know-how, through workshops in the Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish/Russian parts of Sápmi, and

2. Empowering of Sami grassroot women who develop a gender equality strategy and plan in Sápmi.
