Work against sexualized violence in Europe
IMAGINE, which stands for “Inspiring Male Action on Gender Equality in Europe,” is a cross-European project on preventing sexualized harassment and sexualized violence.
In IMAGINE the three organisations MÄN, Emancipator and The Good Lad Initiative are working together to engage young men in combating sexualized harassment and sexualized violence (SH&SV). We support each other and work with youth to create a safe environment for all.
During spring of 2017 we have recruited volunteers working against SH&SV in the IMAGINE project – Inspiring Male Action on Gender Equality in Europe. The volunteers are now working throughout the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom to inspire young people to reflect upon gendered norms, equality, relationships and consent.
Through the project, we want to inspire more actors to work with gender transformative violence prevention programs to counter SH&SV in Europe.
The project runs until August 2018 and is co-financed through the EU Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme. Our work has been showcased in the NON.NO.NEIN campaign of the European Commission’s work to stop violence against women.
Do you want to learn more about our work or would like us to come hold a workshop at your organisation?
