“Together against racism” - Partnership Building Activity

Partnership-building Activity

4-8 December 2023 | Ireland

3days PBA on anti-racism will give youth workers and other professionals, chance to exchange different organisational anti-racist beliefs and practices and co-create new ideas/projects in order to combat racism and discrimination.


The motto of the European Union is: ‘United in diversity’ and the Commission’s EU Anti-racism Action Plan for 2020-2025 aims to step up action against racism and achieve a Union of Equality. Research has shown that racism has wide-reaching negative effects on individuals, families, communities, and entire societies

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 (anti-)racism and how can YOUth work address it is important question that we want to tackle with this PBA.

We want to create space for reflection and putting our own, social and organisational attitudes, powers and practices under the magnifying glass. Are our projects and structures really accessible and built on equality and fairness? How can we challenge ourselves and power systems in order to create the change and what role international programmes have in this? The PBA should allow professionals to question each other’s way of working and look for the ways to create bridges and build new practices.

This PBA is part of the SALTO ID  “Embracing diversity” series! To address the topic of (cultural) diversity SALTO ID, in cooperation with several National Agencies, is planning till 2028 to focus on topics like anti-racism, interfaith dialog... and work on each for period of 2 years.
