This project proposal is initiated by the problem of the lack of inclusion of the youth and women in the decision-making process in the metal sector all around Europe.

Beside the stereotype that metal sector is a “male” sector, there is a crucial need of motivating and encouraging youth and women in the metal sector to take active participation and inclusion in companies’ decision-making process. Therefore, in this project action have joined 6 representative trade unions from the metal sector coming from Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Lithuania, and Poland.

In order to have active social dialogue and fruitful project results, we have invited 3 employers’ organizations coming from Spain, Serbia, Macedonia and trade unionists and employers’ training/education organization from Germany
