Join The Game: Two successful dissemination events were held in Rijeka and Delnice

At the end of last year, we held in the Children's House with the support of the master of youth work Mirela Pašić, the presentation and testing of the urban game Join The Game, which was created as a pedagogical tool for working with young women and girls to empower them in choosing a career unencumbered by gender stereotypes and prejudices. The event was attended by all interested persons who work with young people, either in the educational system or informally. 

We held an unplanned second game presentation event at the Hlojkica Kindergarten in Delnice! We are very happy that there has been interest in adapting this tool to the youngest ages, and we look forward to the possibility of creatively breaking gender stereotypes from an early age. Join The Game offers that possibility as well.

The game is designed in such a way that it can be adapted to different needs and groups of children and young people, both in terms of content and form. Its basic idea is to teach and promote gender equality through breaking gender stereotypes in the field of career and the labor market, but the thematic focus of the game can be adjusted depending on the age and specific needs of the group being worked with. In designing the game, special emphasis was placed on creating a safe space in which every young person will feel respected, and will be encouraged to appreciate diversity and freely express their attitudes and feelings. 

Join The Game was developed as an educational and empowering tool for girls and women, but also for other groups of young people, in order to work on abolishing the restrictions imposed by gender stereotypes still present in our society.
