Pale Blue Dot

‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.’ (Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

But are we?!

In the rapidly changing modern world, hatred and discrimination can spread at a fast pace. In light of the recent events in Europe, namely the migration crisis and its ramifications, it has become a hard task to ensure all human beings enjoy the same rights and they are treated equally without discrimination.

 

Though the EU made steps toward creating the safe, prosperous space for all, in the Union and neighboring countries alike, Europe still faces challenges.

 

4 out of 10 (38%) Europeans felt discriminated against because of ethnic or immigrant background, skin color or religion daily, these being the most common grounds for discrimination.

When it comes to intolerance and hatred there is much to work on, that’s why Pale Blue Dot project aims to improve the current situation. In order to have more impact on people, we have to improve, gain new skills, knowledge, and more structural cooperation. Hence, we have to provide our youth workers intercultural experience, knowledge of modern-day discrimination, its causes and ways to successfully tackle it.

Objectives of the project:

  • Developing specific knowledge of 24 youth workers from 8 countries about modern-day discrimination.
  • Equipping 24 youth workers with non-formal and new tools for through which NGOs can make awareness-raising campaigns.
  • Enhancing the partnership between 4 EU and 4 non-EU member countries in the field of civil society.
  • Promoting Erasmus+ opportunities among 24 participants during the project and as a follow-up with their target group.
