GEST Joins IDEAS Podcast Project

It is our pleasure to announce GESTs participation in the new project IDEAS - Inclusive Educational Anti-discrmination AlternativeS. Over a two-year period, six partner organizations from the Czech Republic, Croatia, Greece, Iceland and Serbia will conceptualize and record 35 podcasts, with the aim of disseminating feminist knowledge. The project will make feminist knowledge accessible and contribute to the empowerment of multiple marginalized groups. GEST contributes to the project by sharing their knowledge of podcasting with project partners through training and consultation, and by producing 5 podcasts with national and international experts on the topic of gender, environment and climate change.

Through the podcasts, listeners will also be able to learn about the history of the women’s movement, feminist theories, their bodies and sexuality, and LGBTIQ+ issues. They will also have an opportunity to gain insights into the experiences of Roma and migrant women, theories of social reproduction, women’s labor rights and the issue of politics and the political. The podcasts will utilize various innovative methods in order to help the listeners gain a better understanding of the above mentioned topics.

The project is funded by the EU, within the Erasmus+ program, while the implementation partner is the Tempus foundation in Belgrade.
