This project builds up tools, knowledge and methodologies for learners to upskill themselves (in groups, individually or with a teacher) in the relationships between gender inequality and the climate crisis. This includes providing tools for adult education providers. The project starts in January 2023 and will continue for three years.
  • CB4VOL project. CB4VOL’s main objective is to strengthen the capacity of the consortium organisations to develop volunteering work at local level.
