Euromed on discrimination, xenophobia and racism
The Euro-Mediterranean Training Course brings together 30 young leaders, youth workers and educators from 20 youth organizations active in the Euro-Mediterranean area. The course was held from 14th to 20th February 2016 at the InOut Hostel in Barcelona, and analysed the role that youth bodies from all over the Mediterranean can play to combat the growing discrimination, xenophobia and racism emerging as a result of the latest political and migratory events in the Euro-Mediterranean context. The project is funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme.
The Catalan National Youth Council also organized a get-together of youth bodies in the framework of the EuroMed to exchange organized young people’s experiences, challenges and projects all over Europe and the Mediterranean. It could be a good place for new cooperation projects and joint work to emerge. It was attended by, among others, young people from Palestine, Sahara, Morocco, Syria, Egypt, Tunisia and Lebanon.
This course is the first of the activities envisaged in the project “For Youth Cooperation Across the Mediterranean!”, which will culminate with an educators training session in May 2016 in Tunisia in the framework of the Mediterranean University on Youth and Global Citizenship (MedUni).
