The Seminar will explore the main concepts of anti-discrimination and combating hate speech and will provide appropriate tools to participants to recognise discrimination and hate speech and take a stand against them. The Seminar will also cover the concept of antigypsyism, which is a specific form of racism directed towards the Roma community.
Therefore we invite all young people from 18 – 30 who are interested to learn more on anti-discrimination and combating hate speech to apply.
The working language will be Macedonian language. All costs will be covered by the organisers.
Interested applicants should send the application form, along with a CV, to [email protected]
Deadline for applications: 25 May 2023, 17.00
The seminar is jointly organised by the action “Combating Hatred and Intolerance in North Macedonia”, part of the joint EU and Council of Europe Programme Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Türkiye, and the joint EU and Council of Europe ROMACTED Phase II Programme on “Promoting good governance and Roma empowerment at local level”.
