Held in the scope of the Networks of Mediterranean NET-MED Youth Project, this training gathering the two NET-MED Youth Groups in Palestine will focus on how to mainstream gender issues and people with disabilities in youth activities.

Members of NET-MED Youth working groups in Palestine will benefit from a training on how to mainstream gender equality issues and people with disabilities in youth activities. These working groups consist of 35 young representatives of youth-targeted civil organizations (18 in Gaza and 17 in West Bank). The training will be interactive through a participatory approach, allowing young people to support the moderation and the facilitation of the training themselves with lively debates and sharing of experiences.

The NET-MED Youth project is a three-year project (2014-2017) implemented by UNESCO in Eastern and Western Mediterranean countries, and funded by the European Union. It aims at mainstreaming youth issues and priorities across national decision-making and policy implementation. It seeks to achieve this by building the capacities of young people and youth organizations.
The trainers/moderators are Majd Beltaji for gender-related aspect and Sonia Ezam for the inclusion of people with disabilities, both from UNESCO Ramallah staff.
