‘16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence’ Campaign (EVA)
Activities carried out during the ‘16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence’ campaign in Ungheni and Cahul
For two days, on 3 and 4 December 2020, multiple activities were carried out in Ungheni and Cahul municipalities as part of the ‘16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence’ campaign. Local public authorities, adolescents, as well as the general public, participated in multiple activities aimed at raising awareness about the issue of violence against women and children.
In both Cahul and Ungheni, creative and information workshops were held for adolescents on creating a graffiti on the subject of eliminating violence against women and girls. The young people designed and painted murals on the subject of eliminating violence against women and girls.
In Cahul, the activities continued with the inauguration of a professional mural graffiti on the wall of the ‘Coffee Walk’ Cafe, dedicated to combating gender-based violence, created by a professional team called Urban Spirit Family.
The same team drew a graffiti at Ungheni Railway Station, which was also dedicated to combating gender-based violence.
The days continued with official meetings of the representatives of local public authorities with representatives of UN Women Moldova and UNICEF Moldova, culminating in several press conferences.
