Greetings from Portugal! 🇵🇹
Our dear participants Ruggero Carlo (Campania), Giovanni Deriu (Sardegna), Chiara Scialdone (Umbria), Redy Shehu (Lombardia) e Filly Fodaro (Calabria) these days are attending the youth exchange “Beauty lies in Diversity” which takes place in the charming frame of Evora. 😮
Main aim of this project is promoting equality and non-discrimination between young people. No-one is born with prejudice but rather has the potential to develop it over time. It is crucial to foster the values of equality and non-discrimination. Among children and youth, this must be done from an early age through formal and non-formal education. Project through several workshops intends to bring and spread different methods of non-formal learning for non-discrimination work with young people in order to strengthen their daily work, raise awareness of rights, empowering them to recognize and stand up against discrimination and address the relevant institutions to seek legal or other appropriate remedies. At the end of project, participants will prepare one Booklet for promotion non-discrimination and tolerance.
Project topic covered following:
• What is discrimination and intolerance?
• Tools for non-discrimination and tolerance • Stereotypes and prejudices
• Forms of discrimination and intolerance
• Good practice models of tolerance and understanding from participants' experience
• Self-Assessments revisited
• Creative thinking
• Positive affirmation • Problem solving
Discrimination is very sensitive topic and unfortunately, different types of discriminations, every day, affected a large number of people all around world. For this aspect, project activities and project results have equal impact at all levels: local, regional, national and international. In last few years, all European countries, due to migrant crisis and strong migration flows as never earlier, are facing with crisis of intercultural tolerance and awareness, so spreading and empowering non-discrimination and intercultural values through different activities is very important and necessary for whole European society and particularly for young people who are main drivers of our future.
