Face the Race!

Training Course

4-11 December 2014 | Budapest, Hungary

“Face the Race!” project is focusing on developing competences of inter-cultural learning and human rights education multipliers by equip them with adequate knowledge and skills to develop projects to fight racism and discrimination in our societies.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES The main goal of the project is to develop the skills and competences of youth workers, youth leaders, volunteers and future trainers to contribute to prepare, deliver and evaluate inter-cultural learning and/or human rights education activities for youth. The training course gathers together 28 people from 7 different countries in order to provide educational & theoretical background on how to work with young people to combat racism and build tolerance and equality and take actions against racism. We also aim to evaluate exciting human rights educational tools and to develop new tools and methods to be used in non-formal educational framework to combat racism and discrimination. BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT: European societies suffer from the growth of racism and intolerance mainly towards minorities and disadvantage people. This leads to marginalization, lack of integration and participation among young people. The project aims to tackle this issue and these problems, to raise awareness on how to fight racism with all its forms. In the life we are leading now segregation, xenophobia, discrimination and many other forms of negative human interaction are widely spreading. Accordingly, working on belittling such behaviors is a matter of priority because it is affecting the livelihood of people on daily basis. Therefore, we are targeting throughout our training course two things; first, understanding the cause of such acts and second the best practices to avoid and fight them with young people. CONTENT: The title of the training explains its content; "face" represents the idea of standing against and fighting and at the same time it is the human face that makes all the difference; "race" projects the word racism as well as symbolizes the fact that life turned into a non stopping race where everybody runs in different directions. Consequently, "Face the Race!" will be a training course that will deluge into the different perspectives and stereotypes present in human behavior in order to enhance unity and harmony rather than conflicts or dissonance. METHODS: During the training methods of the non-formal and informal education will be used, such as individual, pair and group work, creative workshops, simulation and situation games, problem solving and debate exercises, presentations and discussions, indoor and outdoor elements etc. Through the sessions of the training the participants will held discussions, make videos, posters and theater plays based on their sense about racism. IMPACT: After the training course our participants will be empowered young people who dare to fight against racism and are willing to take actions in their local communities to promote values such as social inclusion, tolerance and empathy. The local projects of the participants aim to raise attention about non-formal education as a tool to promote integration and fight against racism, discrimination and intolerance in our societies.
