Gender Mainstreaming Local Democracy
The programme is based on Agenda 2030 and the 17 sustainable development goals. A special focus is placed on goal #5 – gender equality. Every local government participating in the programme is therefore expected to carry out a change process using the gender mainstreaming method. Many Swedish municipalities use gender mainstreaming as a strategy for achieving the Swedish government’s gender equality political goals. Gender mainstreaming means that a gender equality assessment must be conducted of all policies that affect the way people live, so that everyone – women and men, girls and boys – can live gender-equal lives.
Application to this programme is open between 2nd of November until the 22nd of December 2017. Please go to the "Apply" section.
