Show Racism the Red Card
Start date: Sep 1, 2015,
End date: Aug 31, 2017
The project targets teachers, youth workers and other education workers in Denmark, Germany, Holland, Ireland and the UK. We hope to build a partnership involving five projects of Show Racism the Red Card. The project is an opportunity to develop closer relations between partners, exchange practice, develop new methodology and increase the impact of the projects in the five countries.
Racism is an issue throughout Europe and is a corrosive influence detrimental to the social cohesion of our society. Education is critical to addressing the issue of racism over the longer term. This project seeks to build community capacity to tackle racism through providing a unique platform of education and sport to tackle racism.
Show Racism the Red Card UK was established in 1996 with the concept of producing education resources harnessing the role model status and profile of professional footballers to tackle racism. The project has since grown in the UK and other projects have been established in other countries including the five countries of this partnership.
The project is a strategic partnership involving:
-exchange of best practice
-learning from others
-anti racism training for educators
The expected results are:
- Closer relationship between projects
- Shared learning between projects
- Teachers and educators trained to recognise, respond and educate against racism
- New partnerships developed arising from new contacts from closer cooperation
- An anti-racism education template that can be rolled out elsewhere
