ABOUT THE PROJECT
In this seminar, we want to explore how youth workers as well as young people themselves react when they observe discrimination in youth projects, volunteering projects and in public spaces.
We want to explore what we can do ourselves, as well as the volunteers and young people we work with when we observe situations of discrimination. The main objective of the seminar is create a guide full of tools that allow us to act safely in this type of situation instead of being blocked as observers of it.
We want to promote civil courage and tools for safe and successful interventions.
The seminar has the following objectives:
- Sharing best practices and methods for intervening in discriminatory situations in youth and volunteering projects projects
- Identifying and discussing which situations in youth and volunteering projects need intervention and which need other kinds of responses from facilitators
- Exchanging tools to make young people become more proactive in standing up for victims of discrimination in public spaces
- Creating a guide for youth and volunteering organisations to be used in trainings of facilitators of youth projects (e.g. camp coordinator trainings)
- Creating a first draft of recommendations for institutionalized responses to discrimination within SCI projects and other volunteering projects (e.g. recommendation to be voted on at EPM 2020)
