1st MULTIPLIER EVENT of Up&Up Project

This is the first multiplier event of the project and it will be dedicated to presenting the project to an audience of possible recipients. S-Com is responsible for the event that will take place in Brussels. Two experts per country, as well as the partners, including young people and their teachers and tutors will participate to the “Open the mind” event.

The message to be launched from Brussels perfectly matches the objectives of the project: “open the mind” from stereotypes and it lays the foundations for the development of more open behaviors and attitudes, which contrast the idea of gender-based violence and all other forms of intolerance.

This event will also be an opportunity to collect ideas from the participants of the event in view of enriching the realization of the project and the related Intellectual Outputs: “Stereotypes analysis and good practices to break them down.” The event will be articulated in three parts: an opening part with the presence of representatives from institutions that work in the field, the second one dedicated to a general presentation of the project and the third part will be characterized by an interactive session to collect ideas from participants. When registering for the event, the participants will subscribe to a newsletter that will keep them updated on all the achievements accomplished along the project duration.
