In preparatory consultations with Trias, the leaders of farmers' and entrepreneurs' associations fully opted for inclusion. They now move from words to action at three levels, with the following roadmap:

1. WITHIN THE ORGANISATION

  • a thorough analysis maps the position of women and youth
  • workshops and awareness-raising activities make all members more aware of the situation
  • management and staff develop a policy on inclusion in a participatory way
  • the organisation adapts its institutional operations on the basis of the new policy
  • new strategies and services meet the needs of women and young people

2. FROM PERSON TO PERSON

  • women and young people play an active role in the day-to-day running of the organisation
  • a special working group takes care of the active management of the inclusion process
  • the working group encourages members of all levels to commit to the inclusion process

3. AS AN INDIVIDUAL

  • in training sessions, women and young people develop a positive image of themselves
  • female leaders and young leaders become aware of their position as a role model
  • female leaders and young leaders have the opportunity to fully play their role
  • men become aware of their privileged position
  • all members have the opportunity to share experiences with other members of the association
