Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a LTTC Training Course called “Anti-Bias Approach on Daily Life” which will take place from 16th until 23rd August 2016 and after to 24th October to 29th October 2016 in Antwerp, Belgium.
Discrimination is a widespread social problem all around the world that beyond the all social status. According to the European Commission, accepting of diversity in the public sphere is increasing, but there is still gaps and differences between countries (“Discrimination in the EU in 2012”, Eurobarometer). Although types of discriminations are different for all countries, the factors which cause all forms of discrimination arise from the same sources: the combination of prejudices and social power. One of the most effective methods to fight against discrimination in accordance with the Anti-Bias approach is to be aware of one’s own social power and power relations in the society beside the effort to get rid of prejudices. The main aim of the training course that we would like to organize is to focus on the fundamentals of this awareness.
