PROJECT: “WOMAN: Working On Mastering Adult Nonviolence”
2019-1-IT02-KA204-063155

 

Project details

According to the European Commission ́s 2018 Report on ̈Equality between women and men in the European Union ̈, although more than 9 in 10 Europeans think that promoting gender equality and nonviolence is important to ensure a fair and democratic society, its promotion, protection and, last but not least, implementation still requires a constant change of mind-sets, lifelong education and solidarity. Given the unstable social, political and economic situation not only in Italy but also in the other partner countries and the rest of Europe, we decided to form a Strategic Partnership as we believe that it is of utmost importance to address abuse and gender inequalities.

The Partnership will be formed by the following countries and entities:
-Italy: Petit Pas, association of social promotion,
-Netherlands: Stichting voor Aktieve Geweldloosheid ́s (Foundation for Active Nonviolence) Towards a Nonviolent World Department,
-Poland: Fundacja Zielony Słoń (GEF), Foundation working with fewer opportunities communities,
-United Kingdom: Creativity Works Preston, entity providing an alternative learning and employment centre,
-Spain: Permacultura Cantabria, non governmental organisation working on social development.
As for the learning activities planned for the WOMAN: Working On Mastering Adult Nonviolence project and their main objectives, through three study visits, in Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom, and a course in Spain we will better understand the reality of adult gender abuse victims which will further allow us to raise awareness of this problem among our adult service users.
By visiting participating organisations ́ local communities and other institutions they cooperate with we will be able to directly get to know their best practices in fight for a more just, discrimination and violence free society and round tables will let us benchmark our methods of working with adult learners against newly experienced ideas and initiatives.
We will exchange specific tools to contribute to a nonviolent and more equal society for the benefit of our adult service users such as SVAG ́s methods to work on identifying and breaking the cycle of oppression, GEF ́s manual to address the issue of cyber abuse and discrimination, CWP ́s method of identification of micromachist behaviours, Permacultura ́s emotional management tools and Petit Pas ́ experience on working on empowering women and gender and power abuse in the labour market.
The newly gained skills and insights will be further passed on to other adults and adults trainers during internal workshops organised by the course attendees and subsequently used in defining and implementing future European projects.
On the other hand, gender is not the only factor in women’s lives as there are many more aggravating issues that undermine their well-being and social inclusion which is why education and training that explore diversity issues such as ethnicity or disabilities, in addition to gender, are also needed.
Moreover, in many cases gender violence victims are economically dependent on their offenders which is why shame and emotional dependence add on to the problem. For this reason, the course in Spain will be focused on measures addressing adult nonviolence through emotional management tools and we will also visit institutions that work with women with disabilities or from cultural minorities, get to know their best practices and deepen our expertise on working with collectives, especially women, with fewer opportunities.
As for the project’s impact:
Adult trainers directly participating in the Project will broaden their capacities and gain new abilities for their daily work which in turn will create a direct effect on the gender abuse vulnerable collectives they work with advancing the benefits of the educational activities provided by their entities.
Adult learners who participate in the course in Spain will acquire best practices relevant when facing abuse and discrimination in different contexts becoming more active as European citizens. Also, the multicultural environment and direct diversity experience will raise both groups’ consciousness level and improve their linguistic, task-management and communication skills.
Our Strategic Partnership members will deepen the expertise regarding gender discrimination and violence improving the scope of their activities and their staff’s qualifications. They will also broaden their international networks and connections for the future initiatives.
Last but not least, directly and indirectly through a wide dissemination campaign and adult trainers’ work more gender related violence and discrimination victims are expected to be reached and empowered. Also, European citizens in general will be better informed and equipped to provoke a social shift so that women are no longer underprivileged and gender-based violence and harassment is less widespread across our societies.

1. To exchange best practices to counteract gender violence and abuse among adult women: Each entity has their unique set of tools and knowledge developed for gender abuse counteracting and targeting the environment of their country; we are looking to create a space for exchanging ways to understand and resolve abuse related conflicts. We seek a deeper understanding of gender violence victims and their situation on all levels, as this knowledge is essential for creating new ways and procedures for supporting them. We also want to share our original system developed for counteracting gender related abuse as we believe it will be beneficial for those interested in the subject.

2. To obtain new tools and methodologies to counteract gender violence: Our Partnership will acquire the tools and methods to work on identifying and breaking the cycle of oppression offered by SVAG, the information to address the issue of cyber abuse and discrimination from the manual developed by GEF, the method of identification of micromachist behaviours towards women and adults of non-binary gender based on CWP experience and their dissemination channel, the emotional management tools course offered by Permacultura Cantabria to adult learners and workers and scopes of abuse in minority groups, and our Petit Pas ́ best practices and tools on working on empowering women and gender and power abuse in the labour market.

3. To increase the awareness level regarding the abuse of power experienced by adult women: we want to raise awareness level among adults of gender violence feminine victims such as the Romani women, disabled, LGTBQ, immigrants, refugees, elderly, etc.

4. To strengthen alliances at the regional, national and European level with entities that fight to counteract gender violence and abuse.

Those who have been selected will participate in different project phases as follows:

– Project management (logistical preparation, schedule, budget, quality control)
This is to be prepared by trained staff supervised by the chosen project coordinator. Should this be performed only by the coordinator, it is highly advisable to assign an alternate staff member who will be familiarised with the task, in case the coordinator cannot complete it for any reason.

– Participation in transnational meetings
There are 2 transnational meetings planned and they will be attended by the project coordinator and the person responsible for the dissemination of each entity.

– Participation in transnational activities.
To optimise the participation in learning activities, an initial meeting will be held with the selected participants to inform them about the project and specific learning objectives established for each activity. The participants will be able to prepare the materials to be shared with the participants of the
other entities during the activity (presentation of good practices, tools to share, round tables, etc.).

– Participation in the development of a new project to counteract violence against women:
It is important that the participants would put the newly acquired knowledge and competencies in practice as soon as possible. That is why they will be asked for their participation in writing in the development and creation of future projects during the course in Spain.

– Dissemination through our websites, social networks and Erasmus + platforms.
This task will be assigned to the person responsible for dissemination in each entity. All the activities described in the “Dissemination” section will be carried out.

– Internal dissemination
The participants will organise a workshop before finalising the project to present the results to the rest of the staff and other adult workers with whom each entity collaborates.

1. Preparatory phase
All the partners will be notified when the project is approved. This will set the preparatory phase in motion. We will begin with preparing an internal agreement to be signed by all the partners; This document will contain a detailed plan of work along with obligations, responsibilities, tasks of each
part of the agreement as well as deadlines, evaluation measures for each outcome and other relevant documentation.
Then the dissemination campaign and other activities planned for this phase of project will start (for more information please consult Project Management and Dissemination section).
After ensuring the proper project visibility we will run the participants selection process, fully described in the Participants section.
The project assumes a series of transnational activities; Tasks to be conducted during each transnational activity are to be undertaken by the entity and project coordinator of the country where the visit will take place, and consist of the following:

1.Transportation
Flight and/or other means of transport ticket booking will be the responsibility of each organisation project coordinator

2. Linguistic preparation
Each participant will be asked for presenting Europass Language Passport; The purpose of this is to ensure a sufficient English level for an effective execution of the course and for us to recognise each participant’s individual needs. Should any of them need an assistance with issuing the Europass
Language Passport, they are going to be helped by each organisation project coordinator. If needed, additional English classes will be conducted by each entity to ensure a proper communication level among participants and trainers before, during and after the course.

3.Pedagogical preparation
An Information Pack will be prepared, containing material such as the course structure and venue, timetable, basic transport and safety tips and so on. This is to be received and thoroughly assimilated by each participant. At least one information meeting will be organised by each entity project
coordinator to explain all the project details, answer the participants questions and resolve doubts, should any arise.

When hosting an activity, each organisation will have the following obligations:
Providing accommodation and course venue for the participants; both should be equipped with tools necessary for effective execution of the course as well as prepared for reception of participants with special needs, including mobility needs.
Kitchen service; there will be three meals provided: breakfast, lunch and dinner. All should be adequate to the participants special needs, which are to be collected and stored by the hosting organisation.
Security and safety measures; to be established by the hosting entity. However, each entity will follow general basic health safety tips, such as no perception altering substances allowed, designing an open smoking area, providing first aid kit and first aid trained staff on site as well as 24 hours
available transportation for the duration of the course, explaining potentially dangerous on site elements if applicable and providing the participants with a clear evacuation plan in case of emergency. The hosting organisation will also be responsible for collecting and storing emergency
contact numbers of each participant.
General support if needed; as explained earlier, all the participants will be provided with a Information Pack, which will contain all the basic data on regarding the course. Also, there will be a contact person assigned to respond any question regarding travel, accommodation, transportation or health
and safety issues that the participants may have.

The hosting organisation in each transnational activity are:
1st Transnational Meeting (Kick Off): Permacultura Cantabria (Spain)
2nd Transnational Meeting (Final Evaluation): Green Elephant Foundation (Poland)

APPLICATION OF NEW TOOLS AND KNOWLEDGE PHASE
The participants who attend the course in Spain will carry out internal workshops to transfer the acquired knowledge and tools. For the realisation of the workshops they will contact and invite adults from their communities and organisations. It is expected that adult women from disadvantaged social
groups who have been victims of abuse of power will participate.
Activities:
Selection of participants
Internal workshop
Support and mentoring
Evaluation

DISSEMINATION CAMPAIGN
In order to reach the desired impact of the project at the local, regional, national, European and international level, we will carry out a dissemination campaign divided into 3 stages (see the section “Dissemination”):
Dissemination of the project before the course in Spain:
Creation and dissemination of intellectual products
Round Tables
Meetings with important actors
Dissemination of best practices
Dissemination of the project during the course:
Creation and dissemination of intellectual dissemination products
Dissemination of outstanding experiences and knowledge
Dissemination of the project after the course:
Creation and dissemination of intellectual dissemination products
Meetings with important actors and managers
Dissemination of internal workshops

MANAGEMENT AND QUALITY CONTROL
Each entity will be in charge of managing their own tasks and budgets. All strategies, efforts, equipment necessary to meet deadlines in time, form and quality will be established. Petit Pas will manage the project as a whole, supervising the activities of all the partners. That means, we will carry out evaluations of the work plan, performance, quality, results, etc. We will have an initial transnational meeting and another one near the end of the project for the final evaluation. An additional meeting will be held at the end of the course in Spain to carry out an intermediate evaluation of the project.
Activities:
– Project and budget management
– Evaluations
– Preparation reports
– QA
– Transnational Meeting in Spain
– Transnational Meeting in Poland
– Intermediate meeting
Each activity will be permanently monitored to ensure that they are completed on time.

Team work implies the appearance of conflictive situations; in terms of conflict, it is always better to prevent than to resolve. As conflicts are inevitable, we want to be as prepared as possible: by analysing possible centres of focus, clarifying responsibilities, terms and resources of all parties, as well as adjusting the expectations of each one of them.
During the first transnational session the coordinators will meet face to face, which will enable them to better understand the context of each entity as well as strengths and weaknesses observations. This could help prevent and resolve possible future conflicts. During the evaluations, the indicators
related to the satisfaction of the participant with the collaborative work and with other participants will be measured.
During the preparation phase various possible problems have been detected by the Project Coordinators, the following being the most important ones; then, potential solutions have been brainstormed:
– A participant fails to attend meetings, does not sign the commitment to participate, does not perform their tasks on time or violates their obligations – that participant will be given a written notification of his departure from the project; a substitute will be sought as soon as possible.
– A participant fails to obtain the European Health Card before the exchange activity begins – the project coordinator of each entity will personally supervise that this occurs on time.
– A participant exhibits a bad behavior during his stay abroad (such as lack of respect towards another person or danger to himself or to his companions) – the Project Coordinator of the host entity will notify the sending entity; in addition, the management or contact person of the host organisation may decide to expel the participant from the activity.
– A partner stops cooperating or abandons the project – the problem will be notified immediately to the National Agency by email, and if there is no response within a week, you will be notified by phone to get information on how to proceed. The internal agreement between the partners also establishes that if an associated entity leaves the project, it must return used funds.
– A participant is late in fulfilling the agreed tasks – the Project Coordinator of said organisation will be asked to give reasons for the delay (the same will be done if the person who is delayed is the contact person). If there is no response within a week, a warning email will be sent, communicating that the fact will be disclosed to the National Agency where the project was presented and in the country to which the participant belongs.
– A Project Coordinator delays the payments to the rest of the entities – when not justified, the partners will notify the National Agency where the project was presented in case of delay of more than one month.
– A Project Coordinator from one of the entities involved does not send the invoices to us, Petit Pas, at the end of the project – if not justified, we will delay the last payment to the organisation until the invoices are received.
If a conflict occurs internally (within one organisation), it is to be managed by the Project Coordinator from that organisation. This Project Coordinator will notify Petit Pas in order to solve it together.
Should a conflict of other nature that listed above occur, it will be managed by the collective of Project Coordinators during a meeting structured as follows:
-conflict identification
-possible solutions debate
-solution agreement.
If the parties will not reach an agreement by themselves, a vote will be established among the best available options, choosing the one with the most votes. In the case of a tie vote, the vote of Petit Pas will be counted twice.
All parties will be notified of this conflict resolution measure; this will be reiterated at the initial meeting to help them understand better the procedure in case of conflict; during that meeting, we will establish the number of people who will be able to vote in such cases.

It is expected for the project to have the following impact on the following groups:

Participants

– Adult trainers
The anticipated impact on adult trainers directly participating in the course is to improve their methodologies, broaden horizons, gain new abilities and tools in order to better approach their daily tasks regarding violence against women counteracting. This in turn will have a direct effect on the gender abuse vulnerable groups they work with, improving the quality of educational activities provided by the involved entity. The nature of the course will bring certain benefits regarding adult trainers’ confidence and their capacity to work in an international environment; multicultural experience will raise their consciousness level regarding gender related abuse problem as well as their linguistic skills.

– Adult learners
It is expected that adult participants who attend the course in Spain will acquire and use tools, knowledge and best practices that will allow them to face and overcome the situations of abuse towards members of their communities, especially adult women. It is expected for all the participants
to become more active as European citizens at local, national and international level, using the working network created during the project and to become more interested in developing new project ideas and therefore shaping their own future. Equipped with new tools and methodologies useful for recognizing and fighting abusive situations, they are expected to look for new solutions for this problem.

Strategic Partnership
It is expected for the Strategic Partnership members to cover their and their staff necessities regarding counteracting gender related violence and abuse and to be able to implement the best practices and tools gained in their daily work, significantly raising the level of their services.
Upon the course completion the participating organisations should be able to act as multipliers, sharing and distributing the methodology, knowledge and abilities gained with other organisations which they share goals with.
Common project work is expected to serve to strengthen not only our Strategic Partnership. The project will not only allow us to get the tools and best practices from our members, but also from other organisations who supported the project in one way or another, having the opportunity to
establish new partnerships with them.

Systemic
It is of expectation that other organisations, adult workers and adults to raise their consciousness level regarding the situations that could happen to their disadvantaged feminine community members or to themselves and to be able to act accordingly, using tools and best practices which has been
presented during the course. Additionally, more gender related violence abuse victims are expected to be reached and therefore empowered so they could act upon improving their situation.

Local level
Adult workers and local adult community members will see themselves the most benefited by the results of the project. Adult workers will develop a new daily routines which will include newly gained tools and knowledge for gender related abuse identification and counteracting, emotional management and raising awareness about this problem among their adult community members. Those new tools will make establishing new adult trainers- adult learners relations easier and more effective as well as renewing already existing ones, facilitating their work towards facing and overcoming violence and abuse situations.
The participants coming from possibly vulnerable backgrounds will understand better what gender abuse really is, and therefore will be able to identify it in its early symptoms and react accordingly. This will empower them and give them voice to talk about their situation.
The international atmosphere of mutual understanding, respect and tolerance will inspire the participating organisations for improving ambience back at home.

National, regional and European level
The project is beneficial for the Erasmus+ community; it reinforces initiatives such as the one that led to this project development; it creates additional interest for international actions to be developed by bringing together various nationalities and showing they are able to work together to address such an important issue as violence against women.
As all the content along with the project results and findings will be uploaded online to relevant Erasmus+ platforms, it will have a positive impact on those who decide to further develop this knowledge and build upon it.

International level
The project will have a certain impact on the international level as well; it will mainly be achieved by employing social media (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube) for project dissemination and visibility; it is expected for the information of value that will be the content created during the course to reach
NGOs, governmental organisations, action groups and other communities outside the European Union, empower and encourage them to looking for new, innovative solutions to address the violence against women problem. All the information and content created during the project duration will be
