The project "Living together without discrimination" shares good practices with Moroccan organisations to combat racial discrimination, racism and xenophobia
FIIAPP and the Spanish Observatory of Racism and Xenophobia (OBERAXE) have organised the virtual seminar “Equality and inclusion in cities” aimed at preventing and combating racial discrimination, racism and xenophobia. The training activity has been developed within the framework of knowledge exchange activities with the Moroccan authorities participating in the project “Living together without discrimination“. The project is financed by the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, led by AECID and FIIAPP takes part in its management.
The seminar has brought together more than 40 participants, representatives of Moroccan organisations and institutions with competence in the prevention of discrimination at the local level, representatives of international organisations, Moroccan non-governmental organisations and Spanish institutions.
This is the first in a series of virtual meetings scheduled to explore topics of interest for the project and to encourage the exchange of experiences and good practices on existing initiatives, practices and actions to promote human rights, inclusion and non-discrimination in cities, privileged and highly relevant spaces in which to address these issues.
Specialists in the field have made known the actions developed by the Coalition of European Cities against Racism (ECCAR) and the Coalition of Arab Cities against Racism. Likewise, the “Toolbox for equality” and “the Toolbox for urban inclusion in Arab cities” promoted by UNESCO have been presented. Examples of good practices and actions already implemented in European and Spanish cities aimed at promoting equality have also been presented.
