MORE ABOUT PROJECT
AHEAD project aims to promote between youngsters non–discrimination and to combat racism, xenophobia, and other forms of intolerance against Roma and other Ethnic minorities (mostly migrants). Partners jointly work on innovative good practice approaches, human rights-based narratives, training, official regular meetings, and European awareness raising campaigns. Project promotes inclusion, tolerance, mutual and multicultural understanding, and fight Roma, Ethnic minorities and migrants’ discrimination in Europe by an innovative approach that combine research, training (national and international) on antidiscrimination and on hate speech, round tables, seminars, exchange of good practices, meetings between different representatives, stakeholders, CSOs and youths’ associations, and a massive dissemination campaign.
Project aims to contribute to strengthen the capacity building of young victims (part of minorities) and the protection of youngsters belonging to minorities supporting them in capacity building and structured new mechanisms in public consultations in partner’s country (replicable all over Europe) on the issue of non-discrimination and fighting every form of hate speech against ethnic minorities, Roma and migrants. AHEAD’s aim is to tackle hate speech (also online) and to combat discriminations that target minorities in 5 areas of civil rights:
education, labour, housing, health, goods, and services, through specific training offered to 200 participants and through a new approach that combines quantitative research, public meetings with stakeholders and awareness raising campaign. After providing expertise, building competences, advocating, and raising awareness among youth people, partners will support the mobilization of young victims and will focus on Capacity building actions for youth, to involve youngsters in decision making and into new structured automatic mechanisms to empower their active participation on hate speech and antidiscrimination.
We are pleased to announce that we will work on these problems for the next 24 months and help young people in our country and beyond.
We are also very honored to provide the opportunity to educate young people through national and international trainings that will be held in all four partner organizations.
Once again, we invite all young people to be part of this success story and together contribute to improving the status of society in Bosnia and Herzegovina and beyond.
