Press Release

‘Equality Makes Sense’ campaign continues to receive ideas for improving gender equality in Cyprus through the online civic participation platform Pusula/Ππούσουλας until Friday 29th April.

Implemented in partnership with the Embassy of Sweden, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and the Centre for Sustainable Peace and Democratic Development (SeeD), the campaign aims to contribute to progress in gender equality by raising awareness on its importance and motivating people to take action for gender equality in Cyprus.

The campaign will run until 29th April, inviting people from all communities of Cyprus, to share ideas on simple, yet impactful ways to improve gender equality in personal, professional and political life. Some of the ideas shared so far include including gender equality in school curriculum, increasing the duration of paternity leave and provision of free or cheaper childcare.

How can you participate in the campaign?

  • Go to www.cypruspusula.org and register on the platform. Then visit the Campaign page and share your idea in simple terms. You can submit anonymously and as many ideas as you like! It only takes 3 minutes to share your idea and you get a chance to win a 50 EURs      gift card!
  • You can also ask your networks, family, and friends to support your idea by sharing it on social media. Even if people do not wish to submit an idea, they can simply “support” (like) their favourite idea(s) and share comments, upon registering on the platform until 29th April.
  • The 10 most popular ideas that receive the highest ‘support’ on the Platform will be shared with respective stakeholders for their potential adoption/implementation. The sooner you submit your idea, the more time you will have to collect ‘support’ and more chances for your idea to reach the top 10!

Once the campaign is completed, the ideas submitted on the platform will be disseminated through social networks and traditional media. In addition, a public event will be organised on 10th May, where the ideas will be presented and discussed by stakeholders and gender experts.
