EmpowHer is a project that stems from a twofold need: that of disseminating the principles of the Istanbul Convention in a clear, usable and interactive manner and that of training the staff of schools, training centers and formal and nonformal learning centers on the issues of equality and gender-based violence.
It is essential to publicize the Istanbul Convention in order to protect the treaty itself (from which some countries have already withdrawn and others are threatening to do so) and, at the same time, bring its principles to young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to promote the achievement of a more equitable and inclusive society.

Within the project, several activities will be carried out that will mainly follow two strands:
1) Local workshops and dissemination events on the Istanbul Convention and gender-based violence prevention, in which the topics will not only be approached from a historical-legal perspective, but interactive and creative methodologies will be shared to increase the level of involvement of the people targeted.
2) A handbook guide in which best practices on gender equality issues and contrast will be included.
