The teaching of Education to Global Citizenship is one of the current prerogatives at national level. The Law n.125/2014 and the Three-year Programming and Addressing Document 2019- 2021 express the necessity and importance of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals set by the 2030 Agenda in formal and non-formal education. For this reason, GENER-ACTION 5. The new generations in ACTION for the Sustainable Development Goal 5 aims to contribute to the development and strengthening of citizenship concept, understood as belonging to a global community, to pragmatically contributing to individual and collective change for the creation of a more sustainable and fair world. The intervention is conceived as an educational program implemented in the context of formal education which aims to improve the knowledge of teachers and students of High schools and Universities concerning the transversality of gender issues. The peculiarity of the project is the proposal of an educational path focused on Objective 4.7 and the transversality of SDG5 of the 2030 Agenda. To ensure this goal, the consortium is composed by qualified partners, able to develop learning processes on gender issues on replicable and scalable way, and operating in different territorial contexts from the North to the South Italy: Pordenone, Milan, Bologna, Siena, Rome, Piacenza, Naples and Cosenza. The initiatives strategy is based on the integration of intervention tools and methodologies that generally operate in sectors that are not connected to each other (Education for Global Citizenship, Education for Differences, University Training, Orientation, etc.) but address the same targets (school, teachers, young people) in order to piloting an innovative model aimed to prioritize the gender issue as a key tool for achieving the SDGs. GENER-ACTION 5 aims to develop a knowledge and a model of intervention mainly focused on teachers and young people aged up to 15, strongly integrated in the school curriculum but also provides for extracurricular moments of confrontation with different local and national stakeholders and participatory peer education activities.

The first one is focused on developing teachers’ skills in order to enable them to promote ECG pathways on gender transversality - Teachers of primary and secondary schools use in a stable way the skills and tools acquired to adopt a gender approach with a global perspective in the implementation of pathways within the Curriculum of Civic Education. The planned actions include a series of MIUR accredited training courses for teachers, followed by materials and tools to support the development of gender-based pathways, which will be accompanied by specialized tutors and capitalized through a final event. This will allow teachers to make use of teaching tools and support, the main causes that limit the experimentation of the ECG. The second result aims to increase the knowledge of young people in educational contexts, such as University and secondary school, in order to enable them to act as actors of change in their own context - Students from upper secondary schools and universities involved and have increased their knowledge about gender inequality and gender violence in the global North and South. Students will be involved in workshops, orientation meetings, seminars and WebTalk, movies matinee events. he actions aim to undermine the gender stereotypes present among young people and at the same time enhance their soft skills. The last result is connected with the path developed in the previous result.
