Mainstreaming Gender Equality into General and Higher Education
The project ‘Mainstreaming Gender Equality into General and Higher Education’ lasted for 26 months – from December 2013 to January 2016. Implementation of project activities was funded by the Mainstreaming Gender Equality and Promoting Work-Life Balance Programme of the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014.
The aim of the project was to support the integration of gender equality in the education system of Estonia, thereby contributing to a reduction in gender inequality in Estonian society. For two years, the project team worked to break the cycle in which gender stereotypes spread, through training of people, improving their knowledge and skills, and changing their attitudes.
To this end, two subject courses on gender equality for universities and one in-service training course for teachers of Estonian general education schools were developed and tested.
