Youth Changing the Narrative about Migration and Human Rights in Europe
On the 10th of December, Human Rights Day, a storm with the hashtag #YoungTogether has taken over twitter, reaching more than 650,000 people in one day.
Hundreds of young people and youth organizations throughout Europe, and six national agencies of the Erasmus+ program in (Austria, Finland, Italy, Macedonia, Estonia, and Slovenia) have come together to tell a clear message on Human Rights Day; young people, locals, migrants and refugees, are standing up for human rights and against hate. They share a vision of a colourful, equal and inclusive Europe for all.
These efforts are part of a bigger European campaign under the name “Aware And Active” which aims to create a new narrative about the refugee situation and the local response in Europe, by mainstreaming youth actions for diversity and inclusion to the wider public.
POYWE is impressed of what a creative group of young people can do in a short time – and happy to be part of this project as an associated partner from the very beginning.
