#YoSoyRefugio

'There are 65 millions of refugees in the world. Get to know some of their stories'.

The campaign #YoSoyRefugio comes from Proyecto Reflejad@s. It deals with raising awareness on the situation of people who have had to flee their countries, and find themselves in vulnerable contexts. Reflejad@s aims to give them a voice, so that people understand who are the human beings behind headlines and hot news.

Sharing their stories is a way to build a bridge between them, and the rest of the world.

Gender-inclusive education in Sciences - Toolkit for Schools

Hypatia Project tackles the issue of gender inequality when it comes to engaging with Sciences - especially in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education (STEM). Overall, young girls and women are less included in these subjects: no specific efforts are made to facilitate their involvement, to grab their attention, to trigger their interest. This happens in multiple environments such as schools, museums etc., and stereotypes remain very strong - not only regarding young girls and women but also regarding young boys men's role in Sciences.

The project team has designed very practical toolkits, providing concrete solutions (including hands-on activities, informal discussions and meetings with STEM professionals) to bridge the divide. Discover now the wide range of possibilities, with ready-to-use digital collection of modules / activities aimed at teenagers to be used by teachers.

Intercultural dialogue for gender inclusion in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education

What is at stake?

Research shows that many institutions involved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education (STEM) have built-in gender excluding mechanisms.

How can intercultural dialogue help?

In this specific case, intercultural dialogue is essential to build gender-inclusive environments, in schools, museums, research institutions etc. dealing with STEM on an every-day basis. Providing the opportunity to tackle the issue of discrimination based on gender, through an open dialogue between girls and boys, women and men, will be key to assess the tangible situations of injustice, to exchange ideas and to eventually work together to shape sustainable solutions.

Why is this a good practice?

Project HYPATIA has been engaging with schools, museums, research institutions and industry, in multiple places of the world, in order to provide staff members, managers, and decision makers in STEM education with concrete and operational guidelines on how to change the way science, technology, engineering, and mathematics is communicated. Such recommendations have been built on the collection of various best practices, that the document highlights with dedicated links.
