“GenderCyprus”: New solutions to old problems
Describe the problem that you want to address. How does this problem effect people in their daily lives?

 “GenderCyprus” is a unique digital space -  inviting women from all communities in Cyprus to discuss what values, policies and safeguards should be put in place to ensure effective gender participation over the scenario of a re-unified Cyprus. In more specific terms, women will be asked to deliberate over how they take a more active role in decision making processes for building a peaceful and inclusive society.

 

“GenderCyprus” will be developed as an online exchange platform as well as a mobile application (designed to run on smartphones, tablet computers and other mobile devices). It will serve as a unique digital space where women can share their security-related and implementation-related fears and concerns, as well as input their desires and hopes in reaching a unified Cyprus.

 

By reaching out women, this platform will provide a unique opportunity to develop alternatives for ‘male-dominated’ policy discourse and promote social change towards a re-unified Cyprus through gender perspective
