As part of the UNIGEM project, during the preparation period for the 16 Days of Activism, a two-day training on gender equality topics using the P4C method – Critical Thinking was held for teachers of the Second Gymnasium. The training was conducted by Elmana Cerić, a teacher from the Second Gymnasium in Sarajevo.

In the period from November 6 – 7, 2023, the first training module P4C was held for the teaching staff of Second Gymnasium Sarajevo. During the two-day training, the participants were introduced to the P4C approach as an innovative teaching method. The participants are teachers of various teaching subjects, and considering that the P4C approach is interdisciplinary, this aroused their curiosity and motivation for participation and learning even more.

During the training, the trainer, mr. sc. Cerić, clarified the chronological steps of conducting philosophical questioning. After the theoretical part, the participants applied the acquired knowledge in a practical form with particular focus on gender equality and gender-based violence. Four groups of female teachers carried out questioning, and through the reflection of critical friends they improved their skills in applying the P4C approach.
