Educational Program with a Gender Perspective
The Educational Program with a Gender Perspective of the ABD Welfare and Development Association is a program that the organization promoted in 2004 and through which an average of 500 workshops are held annually in which 8,000 people participate, including students, families, teachers, agents socio-educational and professional at the municipal level.
It is a program that has a long history in the entity with more than 15 years. It is part of the LARIS program and is the branch of prevention and awareness against sexist violence.
- We work around the prevention of sexist, lgbiphobic violence and school bullying with the ultimate goal of extending the coeducational perspective to all educational spaces and settings.
- We also advocate for the recognition of sexual and gender diversity and for the implementation of a comprehensive and feminist sex-affective education.
- At the format level, the program is based on workshops and training directed from primary, secondary, grades, PTTs, PQPIs … to training for families, teachers and other socio-educational agents.
- Likewise, our work is also based on advising municipal staff and professionals in the socio-educational field to propose improvements in intervention strategies with the child and adolescent population for the eradication of sexist violence and the recognition of diversity.
On a practical level, it means that the workshop team, that is, the team of trainers go, every day, to a different municipality, especially in the province of Barcelona (to a school, an institute, a cloister, a space family …) to do these trainings or workshops. The themes vary depending on the needs detected either from the educational center or at the municipal level.
