The EquAlley project is a 24-month school education project funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme with partners from Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland. It aims to tackle gender stereotyping, social injustice and gender-based violent behaviour among young people, particularly in public spaces. This will be done by stimulating and encouraging young people to rethink gender roles, norms and stereotypes through a ‘blended learning’ course offered in institutions working with young people (schools, youth centres, sports clubs…). Through pilot projects and training with the teachers themselves, the EquAlley team aims to develop relevant and valuable tools that support and encourage teachers to include these crucial themes in their lessons.

Through the creation of an inclusive, blended-learning course and its accompanying teacher’s guide, the EquAlley project aims to provide teachers with tools that support and encourage them to teach about the EquAlley topics. Ultimately, the goal is to:

  • prevent male individuals from becoming perpetrators and instead make them allies;
  • to empower female individuals with respect to self-confidence and self-efficacy while helping them find ways to cope with street harassment (and sexual violence in general);
  • Break down gender roles, norms & stereotypes for men, women and all genders that are usually excluded, thereby promoting gender-sensitive, non-violent and inclusive awareness and attitudes;
  • promote exchanges among young people to reduce stereotypes and discrimination.
