Anti-Bias Approach in Daily Life
Start date: Jul 1, 2016, End date: Jun 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Context of the ProjectDiscrimination is a widespread social problem all around the world that beyond the all social status. According to the European Commission, accepting of diversity in the public sphere is increasing, but there is still gaps and differences between countries (“Discrimination in the EU in 2012”, Eurobarometer). Although types of discriminations are different for all countries, the factors which cause all forms of discrimination arise from the same sources: the combination of prejudices and social power. One of the most effective methods to fight against discrimination in accordance with the Anti-Bias approach is to be aware of one’s own social power and power relations in the society beside the effort to get rid of prejudices. The main aim of the training courses that we would like to organize is to focus on the fundamentals of this awareness.Objectives of the ProjectThe training courses are specifically designed to provide a learning environment for the participants who are youth workers, youth trainers and project managers in the field of anti-discrimination work- To learn about the characteristics knowledge of Anti-Bias approach and to gain its methodogical skills - To develop new perspectives by experiencing on prejudices, power relations and discrimination - To integrate the Anti-Bias approach into fields where they work in order to fight against individual and institutional discriminations - To develop new projects or support current projects by using Anti-Bias approach- To enable them to empower young people in order to raise awareness of discrimination through Anti-Bias approach- To gain information about YouthPass and Erasmus + and to manage to use these tools in fields they work inDescription of the Activity & Number and Profile of Participants1.
