Raising awareness of the benefits of inclusive education for the general public as well as decision makers
The Project will launch a high-visibility campaign to promote inclusive education and to highlight its added value for the education systems, for learners and for societies in general across the region. The campaign will also aim to fight negative attitudes, stereotypes and prejudices (of the general public and of professional communities) that hamper intercultural dialogue and inclusive approaches in education.
The underlying goal is to provide young people from marginalized and mainstreamed communities with positive messages that encourage active civic participation, tolerance, mutual understanding, and moderation. These multi-layered awareness-raising actions will aim to weave together elements of teaching in the classroom, interaction among school professionals and the community around.
The activities under this component will target two different groups: within the general public, the project will not only target the minority groups themselves, but also place a particular emphasis on sensitising majority groups (parents, media, public servants, pupils/students and others). Within the professional educational community, target groups will include ministries, teachers, professional associations, unions, school professional staff, and universities.
The project will convey to the wider public the messages of tolerance, acceptance, openness, empathy and respect. For the education community, the message will also be conveyed that not only can they promote inclusive education, but they must do it by highlighting its added value for the education systems, for learners and for societies in general across the region.
