The kick-off meeting for the ASTRAPI Project ERASMUS+ KA2 was held in Copenhagen, at 3F’s (www.3f.dk) main office on 26 and 27 November 2019.
The ASTRAPI Project (Active Strategies for prevention and handling sexual harassment incidents) aspires to create field tested toolkits and instruments to effectively put into practice intervention measures for preventing and handling sexual harassment at work.
The ASTRAPI partnership consists of Cyprus Academy of Public Administration (CAPA) as the Applicant organizations and the project partners FIU-Ligestilling/Dansk metal (Denmark), Hypatia Foundation (Cyprus), Gender Five Plus (Belgium), Open Education Centre (Bulgaria), European University Cyprus, PANTEION University (Greece) and University of Barcelona (Spain).
All partners are committed to project tasks are looking forward to collaborate in the project.
The agenda was quite formal, laying out the work plan and defining partner roles. Scope and structure of Intellectual Outputs were discussed and agreed upon and every partner is now ready to start working on project tasks.
Jane Pillinger, a Gender Expert joined the meeting through Skype conferencing to present and discuss with partners the conceptual framework for project implementation.
A delegation of the partnership had a chance to attend a Conference on UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25 held by FIU-Ligestilling, the day before the kick-off meeting.
Moreover, besides the formal agenda partners were treated with some ”sightseeings”:
- A guided tour of the 3F-house from top to bottom – together with the history of trade unions in DK and their work with Gender and LGBT- equality.
- A guided tour in bus around Copenhagen “by night” to see historical places of interest in the perspective of gender and LGBT+ equality. The guide was the LGBT-activist and writer, Bjarne Henrik Lundis https://www.facebook.com/bjarnehenrik.lundis.
