YouthEQ 2017 – Nordic gender equality conference with a focus on youth


By means of a Nordic conference, this project wanted to stimulate sharing of knowledge and experiences in the Nordic region and ultimately the adoption of joint strategies for gender equality in youth activities. The Conference disseminated methods and experiences from the Nordic countries that are possible to integrate into local and regional youth policy and youth activities.

The goal for the conference was to become a forum for meetings and dialogue around gender equality and gender mainstreaming and that it facilitated continued inter-Nordic collaboration and sharing of experiences. The ambition was to create a Nordic alliance with recurring meetings for public, private and non-profit actors involved in the work to promote gender equality among young people.

The conference was held in Kalmar, Sweden, in autumn 2017.
