Gender-Based-Violence Prevention

From June 25th to June 26th 2019, DEEP Germany again co-headed with Calatea a ‘Gender-based violence prevention’ program at the German School Madrid, Spain. The 120 participants, divided into five groups, actively engaged in a learning process with three parts: First, the values of Dialogue, Empathic Engagement and Peacebuilding were introduced, which served as a guidance for their interaction throughout the rest of the workshop. Then the participants learned about the history of violence against women and their resistances through a timeline quiz, and about the relevance of feminism in every-day life through a diverse set of examples. In the final part, the group reflected upon and debated how they could detect and transform gender-based violence in their own interpersonal relations and culture.
