These activities will share a total of 2.7 million Danish Krone from the Nordic Council of Minister’s funding scheme of 2014. These activities are chosen because they aim to further Nordic gender equality.

Via the funding scheme, the Nordic Council of Ministers want to promote Nordic cooperation for gender equality. NIKK has been administering the funding scheme since 2013. This year’s activities will start up during the autumn of 2014 and will be completed some time during 2015.

The activities involve all of the Nordic countries, the Nordic self-governing regions and the Baltic states. The projects are:

  • Mapping Promising Nordic Practices in Gender Equality Promotion at Basic Education and Kindergartens
  • Gendered Violence- Nordic-Baltic Dialogue
  • Network for Comparative Studies of the Nordic Model
  • Building and Developing the Gender Equal Nordic Region
  • NKMV conference 2014
  • EAMI FEMI – The Society of Nordic Indigenous Women
  • Establishing a Nordic Mentoring Network

  • MenEngage Network Nordic
