CULTIVATING GENDER AND SOCIAL SENSIBILITY OF YOUNG MALE
LEADERS OF THE NORTH CAUCASUS
Implemented in 2016, the project targeted young men (under 35 years old) from four North-
Caucasian republics (Chechnya, Kabardino-Balkaria, Dagestan and Ingushetia).
Among the participants of the trainings there were activists, journalists, bloggers, religious
leaders, school teachers, and university professors.
The project was aimed at cultivating gender and social sensibility of the target group,
increasing their motivation to participate in social activism, as well as at developing personal
resources necessary for social work.
Each training included verbal-reflective practices, group work, forum theatre sessions,
lectures and body moving exercises.
