Start of the project A short-term joint staff training event took place in Vienna at the end of May 2018 (22.5.-26.5.). The Austrian partner – Verein EfEU- hosted the event and two persons (or more) for each partner organisation participated in it. The partners trained one another in techniques used by them in their work with teachers in the field of gender sensitive education. Representatives of Masaryk University presented several drama techniques. The project “Towards gender sensitive education” started in September 2017. The first meeting of the five involved organisations took place at the Masaryk University in Brno (4.-6.11.2017). The first step of the project is a desk research where the project partners analyse national education policy documents. The aim thereby is to map how (if at all) gender issues are included in these documents, to see in what context the partners are working and what the areas are to specifically focus on during the design process of the courses for gender sensitive education.
