“Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Individually, we are all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

WeBalkans Young European Ambassadors network, supported by the EU Info Offices and Houses in the Western Balkans, are joining the initiative with a unique creative street action, which will gather girls and women from our towns to have their say.

The activity is devoted to the celebration of women and their identity in the Western Balkan region, and will be happening in all Western Balkans capital cities and other towns on the same day, at the same time.
