Delta plan

Engaging men and boys in the prevention of gender-based violence

Globally, the movement of boys and men who want to be part of the solution to the problem of gender inequality and violence against girls and women is growing. In the Netherlands too, more and more organisations are realising that we need to make men part of the solution, and they are pursuing this in many different ways.

The ‘Delta Plan’ is bringing these initiatives together. It is a broad social movement of organisations with a common goal: engaging men and boys in the fight against violence against women. The Delta Plan is based on the strength of existing organisations, alliances, programmes, interventions and campaigns, so that in synergy they can have a greater impact. Through a gender-transformative approach, the Delta Plan aims to bring about lasting social change. Together we will put an end to violence against women. Will you join us?

The Delta Plan is a cooperation of a large and growing number of organisations, each working in their own way on engaging men and boys in the prevention of violence against women. Delta Plan offers a network, works to promote mutual expertise, and is strong in advocacy on the subject. Together, we investigate what each organisation can contribute to the Delta Plan and how the existing programmes, interventions, campaigns, organisations and alliances together can have the greatest possible impact.

Regular meetings are organised for partners where we get to know each other and each other’s work, learn from each other and see how we can work together to prevent violence and raise the profile of working with men. In 2020, a number of online meetings were organised, the recordings of these are available via Hannah.

Joining the Delta Plan is above all a declaration of intent and a commitment to our common goals. Do you want to join? Sign up! Your logo will be added to the partner page and we will put you on the mailing list.

Don’t know yet whether your organisation wants to join? You can also join the mailing list: then you will be kept informed and receive invitations for meetings. You can always join later if you want.
