Images in Action - Break down stereotypes!

Who leads this initiative of intercultural dialogue ?

SALTO-YOUTH (Support, Advanced Learning and Training Opportunities for Youth) works within the Erasmus+ Youth programme, the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport.  As part of the European Commission's Training Strategy, SALTO-YOUTH provides non-formal learning resources for youth workers and youth leaders, and organises training and contact-making activities.

What is this good practice about ?

Quite a lot of people have prejudices about inclusion groups. This takes away the opportunities of the young people without even giving them a chance. SALTO-YOUTH hopes this booklet inspires youth workers accross Europe to create greater acceptance of people who are different, to build a better image for them amongst the general public. Combating these negative images is part of youth and inclusion work. This booklet aims to give youth workers practical tools and tips to improve the image of their target group. This way, they create greater acceptance of the young people in question, which will contribute to their inclusion in society.

How does this initiative contribute to intercultural dialogue?

It provides a great diversity of ideas in order to break down stereotypes and to deconstruct prejudice. It enables to tackle how images, stereotypes and prejudice function, where they come from and how to influence them in a positive way; how to plan an image-building campaign; how to involve the young people from your organisation in your image-building campaign...
