DATE
18th – 25th of August 2013
 
PLACE
Novi Sad, Serbia
 
CONTENT
Europe of today plays an active role in securing global peace and promoting solidarity among countries and regions. However, currently the socio-economic challenges in the EU and the whole European continent transform the focus of its citizens to finding internal balance and security. There is a variety of disaffection and action present around Europe: anger in the anti-austerity, anti-government riots in Greece, youth movements in Spain, simmering anger in Italy. Solidarity and mutual support are a crucial element of active citizenship and contribution to building a holistic society and in achieving the above mentioned stability. Ensuring that people are able to come together, that their energy is becoming synergy and their social energy is mobilised for building peace, are important elements the peace building on local and national levels needs to be based on.

UPCOMING EYCE EVENT: “Gender: Revised!?” Study session in cooperation with WSCF-E

DATE
11th – 18th of November 2012

PLACE
European Youth Centre, Budapest, Hungary

 

AIM AND OBJECTIVES
Gender identity is only one aspect of identity, however it is the most easily stereotyped, pigeonholed, overlooked aspect, and very often is the cause of severe violence, discrimination and jeopardisation of Human Rights on a daily basis. In many societies around the world, gender equality, especially the role of women, and violence against women, is an issue which calls for urgent action. In Europe as well, less visible, yet strongly present gender inequality needs further addressing.

The study session was thematically inspired by a publication by World Council of Churches (WCC), “Created in God’s Image: From Hegemony to Partnership – a set of guidelines for discussion, theological reflection and bible study”, which emphasizes the need to develop a sense of positive masculinity in order for us as a community of women and men together to deconstruct misconceptions about being men that seem to uphold violence and domination as “masculine” traits, and to work towards re- socialization for just peace.
