What is Men in Care?

Men in Care (MiC) is a project of twelve national organisations from seven different European countries, which will help reduce barriers for men who want to become involved in caring activities. MiC aims to improve workplace conditions to promote men taking caring roles and will assess how policies and workplace cultures can change to enable men to become more active in caring for children, elderly, partners, co-workers and friends. Involving workers, trade unions, employers, and families, the project will enable men to take time to care for themselves and others. Find more information on the project here.

MiC 3rd International Meeting (Oslo/Online)

A summary and reflection from the 3rd MiC partner meeting.

Back in Autumn, MiC partners had the chance to meet online for our 3rd international partner meeting. The meeting, which was originally scheduled to take place in Oslo, was a welcomed chance for us to discuss developments and challenges within the framework of the Men in Care project.

At the end of a year which has been extremely challenging, and in fact changed the way a lot of us work and live, we are taking this chance to reflect on our experiences. Through work on the MiC project, partners are working to assess how policies and workplace cultures can change to enable men to become more active in caring roles (whether for children, elderly, partners, co-workers or friends). Of course, this means something very different now in comparison to the start of the project. Amongst other things, the Covid-19 pandemic has revealed new inequalities, meaning that research into a fair work-life balance is more important than ever.
