Anti-racism (youth) work in Vienna

Study Visit

12-15 October 2022 | Vienna, Austria

This study visit explores the question how youth work addresses (anti)-racism. During the activity we will hear experts, visit local projects and meet self-advocacy organizations to see and discuss challenges and good practices in anti-racism work.

What is in for you?

  • You will explore and reflect different layers and different dynamics of racism in Austria and the countries of participants.
  • You will find out more about anti-racist approaches, concepts and practices in open youth work, civil society and self-advocacy organizations in Austria.
  • You will get an insight how racism affects lives of young people and there living conditions (job, health, housing).
  • You will get to know hands-on methods in anti-racist youth work.
  • You will get to know the European Youth programmes and how they could be used to work on the topic.
  • And of course, you will get to know a lot of interesting people and places.

Whom is this Study Visit for?

  • Youth workers
  • Youth leaders
  • Social workers or other practitioners, who work with young people experiencing discrimination and racism
  • (Young) people from self-advocacy organizations


To address the topic of (cultural) diversity, SALTO Inclusion & Diversity works on topics such as anti-racism, interfaith dialogue etc. for a period of two years each. Under the titel of  “Embracing diversity” a series of activities such as seminars, webinars, study visits, partnership building activities and training courses will be implemented.

The overall aim is to explore different forms of diversity and strengthen youth workers 'diversity management’ skills. The study visit in Vienna is part of the first series, which focuses on “(anti) racism“.  

The motto of our European Union is: ‘United in diversity’. Then why is the struggle for racial equality not over, and seems that it is just starting now in many places through important, big movements, like “Black Lives Matter”? What is racism and how can youth work address it? 

Those are some of the questions that all planned activities will be looking into and dealing with, focusing on the needs of the participants, raising awareness, and thinking about how racism connects with pressing topics such as employability, social issues, civil society and politics, migrants and refugees.

We are closely monitoring the situation with Covid-19 and will take all measures necessary for the safeness of participants. In order to apply you should familiarise yourself with the Covid-19 rules when traveling to Austria.
