About the local hosting organizationThroughout the Balkan region and beyond, there also exists strong discrimination of the Gender movement notable so appropriate support through transfer/exchange of knowledge is required. The main aim is therefore learning to deal with and deconstructing typical gender roles, as well as to transfer the required competences to the participants to develop their own projects and realise them afterwards.

Extra info about the projectLeadership-free is an alternative method for leadership of international meetings. The key idea is that the camp leaders step back and the group as such is informed of all regulations and possibilities and the participants then find a way to organise themselves. Therefore, a daily meeting is necessarily required and the camp leaders are mediators especially for those participants who find it hard to present their ideas or suggestions in front of the group. The workshop should examine the method according to its problems, benefits and downside to enable the transfer from theory to practice.
