European Café #3: Be loud but kind – challenging racism and discrimination in Europe

Racism takes many forms and can happen in many places. It includes prejudice, discrimination or hatred directed at someone because of their colour, ethnicity or national origin. It has been within all states and societies, including the European continent: people judge other people based on their religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, skin colour or even values and principles that they believe in. In our third “European Café: Be loud but kind – challenging racism and discrimination in Europe”, we will talk about racism in Europe and how youth can contribute to challenging it!

The event is organised by the DO ONE BRAVE THING project, as part of The Shaping the Future of Europe Initiative which aims to bring together European youth, youth organisations and CSOs addressing polarisation, radicalisation, youth civic engagement and participation. You can find more information here.

Youth Live #2: Escape!
The second Youth Live event of the Shaping the Future of Europe Initiative aims to bring once again youth together and provide a space to socialise in a healthy, safe and fun environment. In this edition, we have decided to introduce you to our first Escape Room!
The idea of this activity is to give every participant a voice and the chance to engage during our event!  You will only have to get involved, find the clues and escape, while also engaging with other young people across Europe!
Captured in 5 monthly sessions, Youth Live as an activity aimed to arrange thematic activities ranging from games to cultural exchanges to provide an informal, fun and relaxed environment for youth to engage.
The event is organised by the DO ONE BRAVE THING project, as part of The Shaping the Future of Europe Initiative which aims to bring together European youth, youth organisations and CSOs addressing polarisation, radicalisation, youth civic engagement and participation.
