Opis projektuOur project focuses on media literacy through the use of new technologies and social networks to challenge xenophobia, islamophobia and racist stereotypes promoting cross-cultural values and mutual understanding between European and third countries’ young citizens. The project will be carried out in three steps: - The first step will provide participants with training in intercultural topics, media and digital literacy that aim to empower them as critical and active citizens. As such, these youths will be able to detect and denounce political discourses that exacerbate discrimination based on race, religious, and national origin and are commonly used against immigrants, refugees, and minorities. - The second step will consist on the production of audiovisual material through which participants will be able to express their ideas and experiences on racism and xenophobia and will emphasize on cultural, religious and linguistic diversity as one of the main assets of European citizenship. Through their production, these young citizens will create counter narratives that will valorise refugees as an added value to European identity. - The third step will gather together participants in a meeting in which the material produced will be exhibited and discussed by its creators. The meeting also aims to foster social networks that will keep these young citizens in contact in order to guarantee continuity and sustainability of the project impact upon conclusion. We are currently planning to submit a project on this topic as coordinators; however, we are also considering looking for a leader with a project already formulated and offer our collaboration. The Euro-Arab Foundation can provide high-level expertise, training and education in all aspects related to social, cultural, economic and political issues in the MENA region. We may provide as well services in the areas of interculturality, interreligious dialogue, gender, renewable energy and environment, international relations and international law, peacebuilding, security and geopolitics. Moreover, FUNDEA offers outstanding facilities to hosting international events as it counts with an auditorium and two meeting rooms which holds up to 80, 40 and 20 people respectively, fully equipped with simultaneous translation and audio-visual systems.
