The European Action Week Against Racism 2018 is now over. We want to thank everyone who got active during this year’s campaign and contributed to raising awareness on the issue of discrimination and to promoting diversity in Europe!
Responding to the increasing populist and extreme right-wing voices in Europe, the message of the 2018 Action Week is “Diversity – Never Enough!”, aiming to focus on what we have in common rather than what separates us.
