How do we make youth organizations more inclusive?
Which role can youth organisations play in preventing social exclusion? Book Right to participate for a workshop on diversity and inclusion on the topic!
Youth organizations are great social arenas for youth that are largely open to everyone. Social exclusion, however, is still a problem among youth. Individuals who feel socially excluded are often hard to reach. Which role can youth organisations play in preventing social exclusion? Are we doing enough?
In this workshop we will discuss diversity and inclusion in youth organisations. The goal is to achieve an increased understanding of diversity and inclusion and to reflect about the importance of these. We will also assess what can be done in your organisation to make a positive change. The workshop will utilise various group exercises to take on these issues, and we are excited to hear your stories. No two organisations are the same.
