Representatives of the both groups had different agendas, issues and trainers in order to share knowledge and experience with one another. Participants also had opportunity to attend thematic films and discuss over the issues during the working days.


Young representatives of Imereti, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Mtskheta-Mtianeti target communities discussed gender equality, difference between sex and gender, gender roles and stereotypes and other gender-related issues. They also received information about gender-based violence and 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence; learned how to write projects, find donors and plan media campaigns as well as received information about the opportunities to study abroad.

While the young participants were writing their projects, leader women form the parallel training discussed importance of women’s political participation and gender quota and the challenges their communities are facing nowadays and prepared to meet with the real politicians at the imitated podium discussion.  By the end of the training they also had opportunity to meet with the members of parliament as well. The training was held for the women who have proved that they are real agents for change in their communities.
