The workshop will take place online on the 8th of March 11.00 – 13.00 CET. The event is directed to Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) working in Greece, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein, who are focusing on any aspect of gender equality promotion and are looking for fruitful partnerships on this front.

The aim is to establish direct contacts among CSOs from Greece and entities from Norway to exchange ideas on specific topics of common interest, relevant to the priorities of the Active Citizens Fund. The specific matchmaking workshop is designed to promote project partnerships and joint activities, as well as the exchange of knowledge and best practices on gender-related topics.

Workshop participants are expected to interact with each other, identify areas of common interest and common challenges, and discuss initial ideas with the aim to eventually shape them into concrete joint project proposals. The workshop aspires to provide the circumstances for more joint proposals from Greek and Donor States’ actors, under the open call of the Active Citizens Fund in Greece “Promoting gender equality and combating gender-based violence”, with a deadline for submission of applications  on April 12th, 2021.

What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, other than identifying ways to attain gender equality working together and learn from the experience of other organizations on this issue?
