EAR: education against racism

Invitation for NGO and High Schools in KA2 project

WHAT IS THE „INVISIBLE RACISM”?

The invisible racism consists of the unconscious attitudes that lead to discrimination not only by race, but also for any other reason that makes a human being feel superior or being holder of more rights than another. These attitudes are naturalized and not taken as something harmful against which we must fight, however, they are the seeds of social injustice and inequality.

OBJECTIVES


  • Raising awareness about the existence of the invisible or unconscious racism in our society, especially within young people in the context of formal education.
  • Developing effective tools that can be used in formal education for the prevention and the fight against visible and invisible racism in schools.
  • Dissemination of educational materials about prevention of the invisible racism in classrooms at national and European level.
  • Strengthen working networks between formal and non-formal education at the Europe level.

WHERE?

This project will be developed in collaboration with schools, because they are the basis of the education of youngsters who spend a lot of their time there, being places of socialization par excellence. It is important to provide professors, teachers and youth workers with tools to detect, prevent and fight these discriminatory attitudes that are often overlooked.

WHO?

This project aims at involving youth workers, as well as youngsters, teachers and professors to share their perspective and experience.

We seek for partners from Programme Countries who are able to involve schools in this project. Each organization will collaborate with 1 school/public education institution from their area to work closely with it.

In all cases the school and the partner organization will need the PIC code and a signed and stamped mandate.
