SISUMMA (Social Initiative of Support to Minorities through Media-Activism) is funded by the European Commission through the programme “Europe with its citizens”. The project aims to foster tolerance, respect and multicultural dialogue among young Europeans through several training activities and debates on the values of a dynamic European citizenship.
SISUMMA project is specifically designed in a constant feedback scheme that intends to generate knowledge and materials to be used in a cascade flow mode during all its execution.
Taking in consideration other previous European initiatives, policies, networks and good practices, the project will be addressed from a local to trans-European dimensions aiming to contribute to a better multicultural coexistence, including minorities and vulnerable groups, fostering European citizens’ engagement and encouraging their knowledge, capabilities and active participation through 3 main lines:
- Training and educational programmes, including the creation and dissemination of learning materials.
- Capacity building of selected target groups in Media literacy and Media activism production & creation.
- Foster citizen debate and promote European networking.
The project duration is 18 months.
