Brussels (Belgium). 13 – 14 March 2017. – The EU project Free To Choose – aimed at helping girls and boys (aged 16 – 29) to overcome gender stereotypes in education, training and workplace, has been officially launched at the European Commission in Brussels. The project is co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme that supports transnational projects aimed at promoting gender equality.

Free To Choose aims at developing innovative educational tools to guide girls and boys in choosing their professional path. The project led by the social cooperative Itaca involves 10 organisations: the Friuli-Venezia Region, Department of Labour, Education, Youth and Equal Opportunities, IRES FVG, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy), MCBIT and Nefiks (Slovenia), Opcionate and University of Valencia (Spain), Apload (Portugal) and the Mediterranean Institute for Gender Studies (MIGS) (Cyprus).

Before the official launch of the project, the project partnership already began working on initial operational tasks. On the 3-4th of July 2017, the first training workshop dedicated to the development of the Operational Map – which will highlight gender stereotypes still affecting the choice of girls and boys in the transition from the secondary to the tertiary education – was organized at the Faculty of Sociology of the University of Valencia.
