*VM* GenderIDTalks #3
A series of Cross-Network Activities has been organized by the Anna Lindh Foundation National Networks of Romania - Group of the European Youth for Change (GEYC), Turkey - Anka Gençlik Derneği (Anka Youth Association) and Tunisia - La voix de l’enfant rural (AVER) in the Framework of the Anna Lindh Foundation Virtual Marathon for Dialogue in the EuroMed.
#GenderIDTalks aims to promote gender equality in the sense of raising awareness on the topic of Women and gender stereotypes in a cross-cultural and cross-sectorial way, by connecting it to other key issues (SDGs and ICD, entrepreneurship, media and advertising, youth and digital) and empowering people towards a meaningful civic, economic, social, and cultural participation. The panels will give them a voice and bring youth together with stakeholders, to exchange experiences and ideas as an important asset for solidarity and future development, to find the roots of and break down the gender stereotypes and intercultural dialogue.
The Third panel (1,5-2h) will have 4-6 relevant panelists from the EuroMed region. On one hand, media platforms are amongst the most widely used sources of information in the world, especially in the times of the outbreak of Covid-19. On the other, advertising is an important vehicle of symbols and messages. This panel discusses the current situation, the challenges, and opportunities of addressing gender stereotypes when it comes to media and advertising industries, how these influence our perception of the other genders. After the speakers’ presentations, there will be a Q&A with participants.
