Expected learning outcomes
The Project aims to put together the youth organizations which work on human rights, equality, tolerance and non discrimination between the units of community. New forms of discrimination have arisen, in association with certain scientific developments and the process of globalization. As a result of these new threats and the outbreak of violence we would like to put an emphasis on this issue and work with the disadvantaged groups; people with disabilities, immigrants, women, children and youngsters.
