THEME OF THE TRAINING
Working with young Men on Caregiving as a positive entry point to engaging men in gender equality
More than four out of five men worldwide will be fathers at some point in their lives
Nearly all the world’s men have some connection to children as stepfathers, brothers, uncles, teachers, etc.
Engaged fatherhood is good for children, good for women and good for men themselves and something men speak positively about.
The ambition of the European network is to promote men’s involvement in gender equality in our region and to support the global efforts of ME. The meeting will serve as a venue for presenting the Strategic document of the MenEngage European regional Network and planning further cooperation, next steps and activities.
