Why do we need Empathy?
Following the funding motto of European identity ‘equal in diversity´, the project EMPATHY supports the prevention of instances and attitudes of racism, xenophobia and intolerance through actions devoted to orientation, integration and inclusion based on non-formal education methods, leading to empathic attitudes of EU citizens towards diversity in general.
EMPATHY: Fostering intercultural dialogue
A project against racism, xenophobia and intolerance through actions for orientation, integration and inclusion, leading to empathic attitudes of EU citizens towards diversity in general.
EMPATHY will design, test, evaluate, validate and scale-up a new methodology of integration of newly arrived young migrants into local communities based on the direct involvement and engagement with groups of local youth.
“looking at the world through other people’s eyes”
EMPATHY proposes an educational path involving both migrants and local youth in order to lead them to become agents of attitude-change within their communities.
