ABOUT THE PROJECT
Respect should rule the world! In a society where the different classes rarely mix and where one’s living place and one’s way of life is too often related to one’s origin or religion, social class, political or sexual orientation, gender, food preferences… it is more important than ever to understand diversity and promote respect as an universal and natural attitude among the nowadays youth. Meeting and mixing with other people, from different origins, social classes, cultures best way to fight discrimination. Various actions, tools and techniques can also help the European youth to spread the attitude of respect necessary to progress and social improvement. This project follows the training course « Stand Together for Tolerance » that took place in June 2015. The impact was so positive that we decided to continue this action, in order to, step by step, make a change in the world we live in.
The main purpose of this youth exchange is to fight against discrimination by realizing and analyzing our stereotypes. We intend to promote different actions and give tools to the participants for them to be able to act among their communities to improve respect and increase the citizen fight against the discrimination. During this youth exchange, a lot of different stories and points of view will be shared. There will also be opportunities to meet various organizations or people who fight in their everyday life to empower and educate people to be able to fight for themselves. There will be organized practical activities, sharing and transmitting knowledge, creating links between the participants and the local people. The group will work on a common goal and create a common experience.
Participative methods will be used. The participants will have to be active and involved in every workshop and be encouraged to think, analyze and debate on the theme. The practical workshops will be transformed into concrete tools to be re-used.
