The recent EU Youth Report 2015 found that out of the nearly 90 million young people currently residing in Europe, 27 million are at risk of poverty or social exclusion. Additionally, 48% of young people with a migrant background were found to be considerably more likely to be at risk of exclusion compared to 28% of those natively born.
INSPIRE US & GET INSPIRED
The Abused no more partnership is launching a call to collect inspirational projects in the youth discrimination field. We are looking for examples of good and promising practices of projects and activities aimed at tackling youth discrimination in different fields and through various methodologies.
Silva Mendes, Director for Youth and Sport at DG for Education and Culture, EC said: “Abuse no more”, introduces the notion of legal literacy in our formal education systems, in a rather innovative way to prevent marginalisation and social exclusion. My Voice – My rights gives us the opportunity to re-discover our legal systems and seek in there solutions but more importantly it makes us realize that individual rights are not merely a tool of preventing marginalisation but at the same time a reflection of our European values such as freedom, tolerance and non- discrimination. Re-exploring our roots and our common cultural heritage can be an effective answer to the multiple crises Europe is facing.”
