Face The Race!

The training activity took place
in Budapest,Hungary
organised by MCSLSZ

Aims & objectives

"Face the Race " is a training course that aims to raise awareness of 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 is widely spreading. Accordingly, working on belittling such behaviours 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.

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 behaviour in order to enhance unity and harmony rather than conflicts or dissonance.
