Rówoważnik – Equivalent

 

Rówoważnik – Equivalent is an EEA Grants project promoted by “Laboratory for
Change Foundation”, Opole, Poland, in partnership with Evris Foundation.
The aim of the project is to implement in 4 secondary schools in the “opolskie
voivodeship“ (a region which consists of 12 small provinces), procedures and
standards of counteracting discrimination, with particular emphasis on gender
equality. Procedures and standards will be developed together with students,
teachers and parents, taking into account the specific needs of a given school
environment and based on good practice from Iceland. That is why we plan to
conduct a diagnosis, meetings and workshops based on the design thinking method.
