On 3-6 December 2019, the first Study Tour of the recently established Working Group “Gender Equality” took place in Bulgaria.

On the first day, the Forum’s member organisation “The Green Light for the Civil Initiatives Foundation” organised the Round Table “Gender Equality: approaches and understanding in the EU and Russia” in Sofia where representatives from 19 different organisations and seven countries took part. After the round table, the Working Group met in picturesque Borovets to discuss its development and the next activities. On the last day, the participants met two local NGOs: the Forum’s member BlueLink and the Association Animus which provides support to women who experienced violence.
