Objective of the Project

The project reacts to the long-term underrepresentation of women at all levels of decision making and an inadequate enforcement of gender mainstreaming in decision making of local governments. The connection between these two problems will be mapped and explored in detail as a part of the project. All activities are related to a system change in the form of an establishment of positive measures and the enforcement of gender mainstreaming, especially at the level of towns and villages. The project will contribute towards this change via analyses of the present state, raising public (both specialist and wide) awareness of the topic through conferences, information materials etc., transfer of know-how and experience from Scandinavia, gaining new supporters - especially men (Coalition for an equal representation of women and men, list of ambassadors), working with key participants (especially political parties and local governments). These efforts will then be strengthened by a direct support from women, who are active in public life, by means of meetings, discussions, creation of an expert database, medialization and other activities.
