Countering discrimination and hate
Media coverage and the influence of xenophobic worldviews pose challenges to the development of young people.
With our program “Menschenfreund – Menschenfeind”
(= “Philantropist – Misantropist”) we offer workshops in schools to speak with youth about different forms of xenophobia and radicalisation. Our approach is to create a trusting environment of debate and jointly develop appropriate solutions. To reach young people we train “coaches” who conduct the workshops to create a peer-a-peer connection.
- Democracy education
- Raising awareness for xenophobia
