Project description
In partnership with the Hordaland Region, the Foundation completed the "Better Understand than Hate" thematic project, which allowed co-operation with two other Norwegian organisations. Two study visits to Norway and two study visits to Poland were organised. In Norway, representatives of the Foundation and a group of young people participating in the thematic project were taught methods of working with youth leaders for purposes of anti-discrimination activities. Participants were also trained in methods of delivering MOD (Diversity and Dialogue) workshops. Representatives of Norsk Folkehjelp shared their experience in areas of minority integration and overcoming prejudice and stereotypes in young communities (they described their way of handling minority integration activities and overcoming prejudice and stereotypes in young communities). Representatives of both Norwegian organisations attended Skype jury sessions for purposes of a competition organised for young people as part of the thematic project (the winning team participated in the second visit to Norway).
