PROCOPA: involving fathers in responsible co-parenting!

European project
September 2022 to March 2024

Coordinated by the Chamber of Social and Solidarity Economy, the PROCOPA project, of which POUR LA SOLIDARITÉ-PLS is a partner, aims to stimulate the exchange and confrontation of ideas, and the sharing of innovative practices in the field of gender equality.

Involving 4 European partners and financed by the Erasmus+ program, the main outcome of PROCOPA is the structuring of a network of actors at local and transnational level, capable of devising new methods to bring about change in the promotion of co-parenthood among fathers and civil society.

This project stimulates social and civic engagement through the development of formal and non-formal learning activities on a theme that brings together the common values of the European Union: equality between women and men, and the protection of children's rights.

What for ?

With this in mind, PROCOPA includes :
•  3 transnational working meetings to exchange practices and structure our collaboration methods for the long term ;
•  4 dissemination events to mobilize and involve local stakeholders in promoting greater involvement of fathers in family co-responsibility ;
•  2 joint staff training events to strengthen the skills and knowledge of our organizations' staff on the issue of promoting co-parenting for fathers and relay-players ;
  Capitalize on the knowledge acquired by means of promotion tools.


By whom ?
