Committed to Making a Difference
The STAR project, Stand Together Against Racism, is a 3 year collaboration among 4 partners from Spain, Italy, Bulgaria and Poland, with the aim to counter invisible racism and other form of intolerance in the every day lives of young people, as well the ones online, through preventive measures, youth work and non formal education. We plan to do it through sharing and upscalling their best practices (Lorca Libre from Cazalla on invisible racism and No hate Speech On line from Szansa).
Project is divided into 3 work packaged, where in the first one partners will share, evaluate and adapt the practices, in the second they will be tested by implementation of ToTs, workshop at schools, community meetings and summer camps. Finally in order to ensure the dissemination and sustainability of the project we will develop the manual with the best practices of the project, create a MOOC (Massive Online Open Course), and offer a mixture of local, national and international events – trainings and conferences to disseminate to the key actors in the field. Finally we plan to achieve the systematic change by bringing on board policy makers, having as associated partners 24 key stakeholders from local and regional authorities, schools and grass root organizations, who will be actively involved in all phases of the project.
