YOUTH-ATD-2016. European Youth Anti-Trafficking Day. Together against violence for the human rights

The project is directed to promote the attention of European young people on trafficking in human beings and specifically trafficking in women.

The project’s objective is mobilize young people from Italy, Portugal and other European countries for the celebration of the 2016 European Anti-Trafficking Day in Sicily (Palermo), a territory that over the past years has been dramatically affected by the Mediterranean migration crisis affecting European countries.

The EU Anti trafficking Day was instituted for 18th October in 2007 by the European Parliament as an occasion to reinvigorate Europe-wide commitment for eradicating trafficking in human beings.

The YOUTH-ATD-2016 project will contribute to strengthen the capacities of different European NGO/associations to enhance the awareness of young people on the issues of trafficking, gender violence, migration and human rights and to share good practices.
