Networking

ARANEA ist durch die Teilnahme regelmäßiger Vernetzungsgremien oder per E-Mail mit anderen Einrichtungen im Jugendarbeits-, Mädchen*arbeits-, Frauen*- und Integrationsbereich in Tirol kontinuierlich vernetzt (z.B. in der Plattform Mädchen*arbeit, in der Plattform offene Jugendarbeit in Tirol (POJAT), in der FrauenLesbenVernetzung, beim Arbeitskreis Mädchen*arbeit, etc.) und kooperiert mit verschiedenen Einrichtungen und Organisationen (Verein Mannsbilder, Regionalstelle Jugend in Aktion, Frauen aus allen Ländern, CUBIC – Kultur und Bildung im Context, etc.)

Außerdem hat ARANEA internationale Partner*innenorganisationen in ganz Europa:
TDM 2000 (Malta), Heimvolkshochschule Alte Molkerei Frille (Einrichtung für politische Bildung, Deutschland), Frauen*organisationen in Istanbul und Antalya, AntiBiasWerkstatt Berlin, etc. Diese Kontakte entstanden vor allem durch gemeinsame internationale Projekte und durch Fortbildungen der Mitarbeiter*innen bei Jugend in Aktion –Trainings.

Summary of the project:

The feasibility visit “Gender Matters! Empowering Girls In Europe” brings together eleven youth workers from Austria, Sweden, Spain, Estonia, Germany and Finland who work in field of gender sensitive and transcultural youth work. It will take place in Innsbruck, Austria, from 23rd to 26th of February 2012. The common interest and goal is to create a space for developing future projects that raise awareness of how especially girls with fewer opportunities (focused on female refugees, female migrants, school drop-outs etc.) can be empowered and that could find solutions for gender based discrimination within youth work by using methods of non-formal learning.

The aim is to create more inclusion projects and to promote real equity among youth and youth workers. During this project the participants meet, share their ideas of gender aware youth work, talk about their experiences in field of gender aware youth work, name challenges in their own countries, work on new cooperations and projects, formulate concrete next steps to implement these projects and set up a European network for gender aware youth work. All these activities will be put into practice within the frame of non-formal learning.

Based on the results of this feasibility visit the future projects can be trainings, youth exchanges or EVS-projects between gender sensitive youth centres or even some other action to promote gender sensitivity in YiA-field.
