DURATION: 24 months 


Coordinator: ASOCIATIA SE POATE (Romania) 



“We Shan’t TolerHate” (WSTH) focuses on promoting youth volunteering as an instrument to contrast discrimination against migrants and refugees among the youth categories and within the hosting societies at large. The surge in intolerance, stereotyping and discrimination against migrants and refugees represents one of the most glaring realities influencing political and civil society debate, particularly in the European polities most sensibly hit by the massive migrants and refugee flows from Africa and the Middle Eastern region. 

The final outputs of the project comprise: 

-Manual that will contain the details of the activities implemented and of the related methodologies, serving as a reference for youth operators and organizations willing to implement similar programmes or in need of a benchmark for the design of their own initiatives. 

-Blog that will serve participants and interested external users to keep a direct communication as well as a constantly updated repository of information regarding participants’ own follow-up on their learning 

-Web Platform will be created as a setting of information and e-learning storing information, pictures, videos about the project and will integrate digitalized versions of project outputs
