What is CHARM?

Kick-off Feb 2013Now, what does “CHARMing youth work” mean? CHARM stands for Civic Help for Anti-Racist Measures and is the name of an international initiative that started in 2010.

Our idea is to spread CHARM around the youth work in Europe. That would mean that we want to raise the awareness among various youth organizations and structures for Human Rights and to encourage them to join the European-wide efforts for building tolerant Europe, where everybody is included.

The concept of this project emerged during an international Training of Trainers in Human Rights Education, organized by the Council of Europe in 2009, which was attended by representatives of many of the project partners. Other partners were invited to join as experts in training, intercultural dialogue, work with young people and anti-racism activities.

Through seminar trainings, exchange of experience, cross-border cooperation and consultancy, youth organizations dealing with various issues (environment, charity, youth political participation, arts, leisure, etc.) will be challenged to explore their contribution in building tolerant Europe and to mainstream anti-racist awareness in their work.
