Champions of Change - Youth Promoting Gender Equality
- Author: Plan International
The programme is a component of Plan International’s Global Girls Innovation Programme. This programme has developed a solid model for engaging young men in promoting gender equality. It can be used as a platform for building broad-based support for involving men, especially young men, in promoting gender equality, through the recognition, ownership and multiplication of inclusive, respectful, egalitarian and non-violent masculinities in different countries in the region and at a global level.
The programme proposes four strategies for working with the Champions of Change. This ranges from building knowledge, attitudes and practices consistent with gender equality and for multiplication work to linking the youth with peer organisations and adults who share their vision of gender equality.
The programme is the sister curriculum to the Girls Champions of Change curriculum.
