Moldova: EU-funded project to raise awareness among youth about discrimination and hate speech

The EU is funding a new project to raise awareness among young people in Moldova about discrimination and hate speech.

The project began in February and will last until July 2020. It is implemented by the “MilleniuM” Training and Development Institute (Moldova).

The NGO will organise a Training Course for Youth Workers in Human Rights Education to strengthen the capacity of youth workers to organise human rights education activities for young people with a view to combat discrimination and bullying. The course targets 20 youth workers active in the youth centres opened by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research of Republic of Moldova, and all in all, their activities should reach 500 young people on topics of youth participation, human rights, diversity, active citizenship, and combating discrimination. Trained youth workers will also advocate for equality, diversity and interculturality in their communities and beyond.

This project is one of the five civil society projects supported by a regional anti-discrimination project in Armenia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, aimed at combating discrimination, favouring inclusion of groups at risk of discrimination, hate speech and hate crimes, and raising awareness among vulnerable communities and the general public about redress to discrimination.

The activity is implemented in the framework of the regional project Strengthening access to justice for victims of discrimination, hate crime and hate speech in the Eastern Partnership, funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe as part of the Partnership for Good Governance.
