'WARM': the new multimedia tool
The WARM project is two years Grundtvig European Program, started in December 2007 and ending in July 2009. The partners are nongovernmental organizations from Cyprus, Finland, France and Greece. The project aims to propose a tool open to everyone willing to information and to question gender equality in Europe. It can be used to raise awareness on gender stereotypes, for women and men to question their identity and embedded preconceptions. The tool is open to everyone willing to find information and to question gender equality in Europe. For example, it can be used as an educative tool in adult education classes, non formal education activities, higher education, vocational education and training, in-service training, etc. In it, there are general information on gender equality, concrete and lively examples of women as well as tips to prepare creative activities for learners. The tool is interactive and dynamic so that user can jump from one section to the other. The idea is that the teachers, facilitators or animators can use and adapt this material according to their own needs. This tool can be used to raise awareness on gender stereotypes, for women and men to question their identity and embedded preconceptions. Sometimes, these inequalities are difficult to detect even though they still exist throughout Europe. This tool aims to reveal them and to help learners to question them through creative activities, debates and discussion. It is a tool for inter-gender communication and intercultural dialogue. It aims to empower women to believe in themselves and equip them with means to promote gender equality at local, national and European levels. It can be also support women’s involvement in all kinds of networks an encourage both sexes to become active citizens.
