The seminar is about young people facing direct and personal attacks in public and social media in the shape of offensive comments and threats because of gender, origin, sexual orientation, opinion on migration issues or political ties.

The seminar will bring voices of young people who have had to tackle these problems to the stage to identify strategies and resist these negative perceptions and attitudes also to give tools for effective inclusion of young migrants focusing on how to create inclusive societies in Europe.

The idea is to get together our volunteers in informal manner and play entertaining games at the bar and get to know each other to discuss any ideas our volunteers would like to talk about.

Poetry walk is an idea which came from our volunteer Ahmed and supported by the other volunteers too. Participants will be walking through the city as a group, observing nature and the surrounding city life along the way. Every participant’s experience and imagination of the outside environment varies tremendously. Through poetry participants will finally express their observations in their own words. It does not necessarily have to follow the rules of proper literature neither have prior experience in writing poem. Those expressions or poem will be collected in one platform where it will be published either in a newspaper or social medias anonymously.
