The True Dialogue // Strategic Partnership

About the Project

Racism and Euroscepticism are prevalent in many European countries, including Germany. Misinformation and the lack of targeted education results in different populist, xenophobic and nationalist movements. This increases racist and intolerant experiences, as well as Euroscepticism while normalizing hate in public opinions. Stereotypes and prejudices based on general ignorance of reality target immigrants and minorities, with an important role of fake news, to justify anti-democratic and violent actions. This situation has a boom in the crisis we live in and puts at risk social cohesion. And as the Action Plan against Disinformation of the European Commission indicates, greater public awareness is essential for improving societal resilience against the threat that disinformation poses. Therefore, different NGOs from 4 countries got together to improve active citizenship and intercultural dialogue with the following objectives by involving citizens in their local realities.

The organizations that are part of this project are: NaturKultur e.V. (Germany), Stowarzyszenie Europe4Youth (Poland), Las Niñas del Tul (Spain), Center For Intercultural Dialogue (North Macedonia).


– RESEARCH: Analyse the types of hate speech faced by immigrants and minorities, mainly through fake news, with special focus on those linked with Euroscepticism;

– LOCAL TEAMS: Create and train local teams to fight the hate speech mentioned, which in turn train more people in the community and raising awareness about the topic;

– AWARENESS CAMPAIGN: Promote intercultural dialogue and active and engaged citizenship.

To achieve them, the project includes an interrelated set of activities: local researches; an international meeting to compare the situation between the project countries and jointly design the action and training plans; training workshops for local teams and multiplication actions; counter information campaign of the most widespread fake news; debates with experts and decision-makers; cultural and social activities; etc.

Our Role
