Call: Enhancing awareness & understanding of EU rights and values
Project Duration: 12 months
Budget: 59.651,11€
Country: Cyprus
Location: National level, in urban and rural areas

The project “WE-PODs” aims to combat gender inequality, specifically the underrepresentation of women in the media. The overall goal of the “WE-PODs” program is to amplify women’s voices in public dialogue, focusing on the thematic axes of European Union values. It will train women in the use of a new form of expression – podcasts – to share their views, thereby enhancing democracy and pluralism in the media. The podcasts will revolve thematically around the axes of respect, promotion of dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, and human rights. Women involved in the podcasts will share their views, stories and experiences around these themes.

Target groups:

  1. Women aged 18+ across Cyprus, from various socio-economic backgrounds and geographical areas within Cyprus, including migrant women, women from rural areas and people belonging to the LGBTI community
  2. Small women’s organisations and organisations in remote and rural areas\
  3. The general public
