About the project 
Egirdir lake, Isparta Province, Turkey
The project "Facts and Dreams" aims to increase awareness upon social gender equality as a fundamental principle of democracy and one of the prerequisites for sustainable development. The training course will take place in Turkey and will gather 25 participants from 5 European countries.
During the project the participants will be able to identify the extent of the gender inequality within their own societies and also, experience a deeper level of understanding through cross cultural exchange. The participants would be engaged in discussions and debates on how to satisfy gender equality at the European level, focusing on the share of opportunities and good practices presented to young people. During the training course, the situation of each participants' country would be analyzed and some local best practices would be presented in order to share and establish new project ideas. In addition, during workshops; participants will develop a greater awareness of the gender roles and the existing cultural understandings of men and women. Within the work groups, participants will develop a strong team spirit; while during the dramas and simulations, they will have the opportunity to experience the events from the opposite sex's point of view. This project will enable participants to reflect their countries' culture and conditions of gender by using the presentations and exhibitions. Furthermore, it will make contributions for young people to be open-minded, to respect each other and the opposite sex, to discover different cultural and social realities, to provide mutual learning and to strengthen the identity of European Citizenship.
