The call for proposals aims to co-fund a project with activities at the national level aimed at promoting the implementation of Council of Europe Recommendation on Preventing and Combating Sexism and complementing activities undertaken by the Council of Europe with member states. The project shall be carried out by an umbrella NGO with strong expertise and experience in work related to the promotion of gender equality and women’s rights, in cooperation with national branches. Activities will aim to encourage public debate around the prevalence of, and response given to, sexism by different actors, as well as to promote higher levels of understanding/awareness of the phenomenon and identify adequate answers, as appropriate and relevant to different national contexts; and to promote the use of the Council of Europe Recommendation on Preventing and Combating Sexism as a concrete tool to eradicate sexism.
