A 3-day workshop will be organized by UNESCO to explore a national approach for the promotion of social cohesion by reducing stigma towards refugees in Lebanon. This approach will be built on the commitment of 5 cities, members of the Coalition of Arab Cities against Racism, and on cumulative experiences and networks related to recent intercultural dialogue initiatives in Lebanon.

By offering a space for direct interaction among Lebanese and Syrian youth, the workshop aims to enhance the communication, advocacy and conflict resolution skills of participants.
