CLIENT: Fundación Guné, Barcelona (Spain).
PROJECT: Going towards full gender equality is only possible if we commit ourselves. With this idea, the Guné Foundation of Barcelona launched the “Let’s recreate the world and eradicate gender violence” campaign together with the Association of Sub-Saharan Immigrant Women (ADIS), the Union of Cultural Associations of expatriates in the Kedougou region (UACRK).
For 15 days, from June 21 to July 5, the campaign called on the public to take personal commitments to end gender inequality. The “Let’s recreate the world” campaign – www.recreemelmon.org -, which carries the motto “Ideas, Convictions, Character” appeals to the personal values that must be taken to face discrimination. Thus, citizens are asked to be active and participate by sending their commitments to promote gender equity. We encourage you to participate by sending your commitments by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can also send them by posting videos or photographs on your Facebook or Twitter profiles.
