A comprehensive information and awareness-raising campaign on the gender aspect of the UNESCO International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education by the Greek General Secretariat for Gender Equality

Jan 19, 2018




The General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has widely promoted the gender aspect of the fully updated International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education (UNESCO, January 2018) on a national and international level: http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0026/002607/260770e.pdf .


First of all, a very comprehensive article in Greek and a concrete summary in English have already been uploaded on our website and our page in the social media:

In addition, on 17-1-2018 the GSGE comprehensive article on the key points of the gender aspect of the specific UNESCO document was communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece and on abroad. The recipients of our document have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, all Ministries (the Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs and the Ministry of Health included), the Permanent Representations of Greece to the International Organizations, all the key social partners, as well as the EU Institutions represented in Greece (i.e. the European Commission and the European Parliament) and the World Bank.

Furthermore, after a proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Planning, Standardization and Policy Monitoring on Gender Equality, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality issued a press release in Greek on 18-1-2018, which gained great publicity among the Mass Media and social media in Greece:

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of our joint pivotal role on women’s empowerment and gender equality in practice have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders.
