Understanding Discrimination, Building Community : Exploring Europe's Past and Create Our Future Together
Start date: Mar 1, 2011,
"Understanding Discrimination, Building Community: Exploring Europe's Past and Present to Create Our Future Together" is a week-long youth exchange taking place in Metelkova, a creative art centre of Ljubljana, Slovenia. The project will bring together 36 participants from Greece, Netherlands, Romania, Slovenia and the UK - from original EU member states through to the newest arrivais. They will explore issues of discrimination and prejudice in past and present Europe and learn campaigning and community skills to create a more tolerant future.Using non-formal and popular education methods - for example role-playing as a method of exploring how discrimination feels, and participant presentations that explore the potential consequences - we will share our histories and present experiences of discrimination, identify and challenge our own hidden prejudices, and develop new skills for civic-engagement from the local level through to EU policy-making. Together we can build tolerant and supportive communities that recognise diversity as a strength throughout the new Europe.
