Ländergender - cross-border gender mainstreaming

Jan 27, 2006
As part of the Interreg IIIA Ländergender Project the governments of Vorarlberg/A, St. Gallen/CH and Liechtenstein plan to pool their efforts aimed at equal opportunities for men and women. The aim is to co-ordinate - and assist with - the implementation of gender mainstreaming in the regional administrations of the Lake Constance Region.
The project is based on documentation and on the development of models and instruments for gender mainstreaming, as well as the compilation of a database with gender mainstreaming experts. Information campaigns and training courses are also to be carried out.
Examples of successful implementation have already been presented at an event held in mid-January: "Catalogue of criteria for gender-compliant building" and "Gender mainstreaming as a planning criterion in public buildings and areas" are just two of twelve concrete examples.
