IDEAS: Inclusive Digital Education Anti-Discrimination Alternatives

GEST joined as expert consultant in this Erasmus+ funded collaboration with Centre for Gender Studies, Belgrade (Serbia), University of Karlova (Czech Republic), Colour Youth (Greece), Centre for Gender Studies (Croatia), and Research Centre for Culture, Politics and Identities (Serbia).

This project is a response to the problem of lacking accessible and free anti discriminatory educational content both in formal and non-formal education sectors, especially in the context of rising discriminatory policies and activities in Europe (and worldwide). The goal of the project is to develop a cross-cutting and innovative learning programme intended for adult learners. The programme will offer educational and human rights value-based content, re/presenting the positions of vulnerable and marginalized social groups (women, LGBTIQ, migrants, ethnic minorities) focusing on their multiple discriminations.

The IDEAS podcast consists of 35 podcasts aimed at disseminating feminist knowledge and spark new interest in gendered topics. The episodes are available online on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Deezer, Castbox and
