Promoting Gender Equality in European Active Citizenship
The European Movement International (EMI)
is pleased to announce the launch of a website devoted to its Europe-wide project, "Pariteia - Promoting Gender Equality in European Active Citizenship"
, which aims to establish a European citizenship based on the active participation of women and men in all of the social, political and professional activities and which also aims to create the conditions for positive changes within personal and collective culture.
The campaign supported by the European Commission
and ten partners from across Europe
will run until January 2007 and will include five actions: a comparative survey, a comparison of good practices, workshops, the launch of the Pariteia Charter of Intents and a communication campaign.
The website is specially designed to inform the public about the campaign providing visitors with a background
on the current situation of gender issues in Europe
and a detailed description of the five actions
foreseen. The public will also be informed of all the activities taking place in the framework of the project through a regularly updated news
section. A list of useful links
will direct those wanting to investigate gender equality further to related websites.
