Further citizen debates and discussion groups open to the public including policymakers and stakeholders will be organised. Media analysis on key topics such as linguistic, ethnic and religious diversity will be the basis for discussion. Stigmatisation discourse against immigrants, refugees and other minorities will be addressed.
Special care will be taken in fostering volunteering and granting equal access, including in each of the local target groups members of minorities and hard-to-reach groups, such as third countries citizens so that different social groups will be able to express their diverse opinions thus fostering the goals of tolerance, respect and multicultural dialogue.
In order to address both local and transnational requirements, in each of the participant countries, activities will be tailored both to the specific target group and the specific minority selected by local partners.
A transnational network will be set up to foster cross-cultural debate on practical solutions against discrimination, improving conditions for dialogue and conferring a transnational multiplier effect to the actions developed throughout the projects. This network will thus foster citizens to engage in democratic and civic activities at Union level and will guarantee the project impact sustainability.
