Dare to be different

We believe, that there is not enough knowledge about other cultures and other communities in Visegrad countries. There is also influence of fear from unknown, which is hard to overcome without previous experience. Even though, we know,that we cannot provide the experience to the whole population, we decided to base our promotion campaign on the experience of real people in the real situation. To achieve this we chose to use the social experiment, which is method very rarely used in CE. We will develop several scenarios in all V4 countries and record if people will react differently, with the different people acting in the roles (for example woman in hijab asking for direction vs. woman without hijab asking for direction). We will ensure, that the people recorded in the final video will not be recognizable to protect their privacy. Video will be used for the promo campaign to raise the awareness on negative perceptions and attitudes towards „otherness“. Final part of the campaign will be conference held in Bratislava, with involvement of all partners and guests from all four countries involving young leaders in this area and also relevant stakeholders. The conference should be a place for networking, sharing the ideas and creating the common goals for all CE in the future development. Our specific goals are following: 1. Raise an awareness on the stereotypes & prejudice in CE 2. Motivate & involve young people in campaigning & active participation 3. Create an network- place for sharing ideas and future development
