CHANGE team members Ernesta Grigalionyte-Bembic (NIB, Slovenia) and Veronika Mešková (UNIZA, Slovakia) participated in the online conference organised by the Vilnius University and the Lithuanian Social Research Centre from 12th -13th November. This participation was in line with the efforts of NIB and UNIZA to cooperate within two Communities of Practice (CoP): Alt+G and GEinCEE of the sister project ACT. We believe that the cooperation on regional level, emphasizing the cultural, historical and even societal similarities of particular countries, plays a crucial role in the advancement of the gender equality in the CEE region. Veronika Mešková contributed on the first conference day with her input on achievements of CHANGE project at UNIZA. We feel thankful to our colleagues from the CEE region for their openness and sharing of best practices.
