The educational anti-digital discrimination pack is ready!
Free, digital and available on ICUD project’s website: http://digitaldiscrimination.eu/pack/
The project I:CUD (Internet: Creatively Unveiling Discrimination) co-financed by the ‘DG Justice: Fundamental Rights & Citizenship Programme’ of the European Commission, seeks to raise awareness and explore innovative ways of combating discrimination online, especially on social network sites (sns), by paying attention to its hidden manifestations. I:CUD is responding to an urgent need to carry out more research and projects about the phenomenon at EU level, as so far not enough have been done.
Implemented by six project partners (5 grassroot organizations and 1 university) from five EU countries: Belgium, Italy, Romania, the United Kingdom and Spain, the project aims to provide a practical guide on how to unveil masked discriminatory practices: to show a way of becoming creative internet “prosumers”, who do not just passively “consume discriminatory contents” but actively produce material counteracting such conducts.
Pilot sessions with youths in five EU countries, will offer space to test the methodology and I:CUD results, such as an anti-discrimination-pack for training environments, which will raise awareness as well as stimulate youths to become proactive online users, who detect, react and act against discrimination online.
