European Congress Intersectionality in local policies: experiences, tools and debates

The Congress was held at the Auditori de Terrassa on February 13, 2019. During the morning we had presentations and round tables of experiences linked to intersectionality in other European countries and in different areas. In the afternoon, the activity focused on applied workshops on intersectionality.
During the day more than 300 people attended to share, learn and discuss about intersectionality.
We want to share the content of what we live in the plenary sessions and in the round tables! Therefore, we have the videos of the day available. You can find them by clicking on the sessions marked with (*) in the programme.
