KUN (NO), Ekvalita (FI), Elevernas Riksforbund (SE) in the project "Safe schools" will develop a common Nordic method based on norm criticism to create an inclusive and equal school with a focus on increased student participation.
This will be done through five different work packages with the inclusion of student councils, principals and student representatives in upper secondary schools and secondary schools in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Åland.
We will end the project with a digital launch for the project's target groups: rectors, student councils and student representatives in the Nordics. The student representatives will be the ones who continue the work and spread the method further in their own countries.
The project manager at KUN is Karin Hovde.
Through the project, we will carry out a network gathering among queers in Sápmi, for the exchange of experience and organizational development. The aim is to strengthen the queer Sami organization and in that way build up more and better meeting places for the whole of Sápmi. In the long term, more meeting places and a stronger queer Sami organization will contribute to more openness and knowledge, both among queer Sami, but also the general population.
The network gathering will bring together participants from the Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian sides. Such network gathering has two main purposes:
The project is financed by Nordisk Ministeråd, and is a collaboration between KUN, Garmeres Norge, Sameföreningen i Stockholm Sweden and Suomi Sami Nuorat Finland.
