IYC 13 “LOG IN for SOCIAL INCLUSION, LOG IN for HUMAN RIGHTS”
It will be held in Kumanovo, Struga / Mavrovo and Skopje from the 22nd of July to the 8th of August 2013 by the joint coordination of YEU and the CID (Center for Intercultural Dialogue). The IYC 13 will host 70 participants from 19 countries, namely: Belgium, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland, Turkey, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Slovenia, Romania, Ireland, Portugal, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Italy.
The main aim of the IYC 13 is to empower the participants to fight exclusion and discrimination in the cyber space and promote active youth participation, inclusion and human rights using IT & Social Media, using tools of non-formal education. Being held in a country with a lot of multi-ethnic groups interacting with each other, the participants will have a first-hand experience in diversity both offline and online.
The IYC13 will also give contribution to the Council of Europe’s campaign against hate speech online and will encourage participants to establish links with the campaign and local environment in their follow up activities.
Stay tuned for updates soon!
