The project aims to create respect for diversity and to stimulate social dialogue and solidarity by working with prospective young journalists, broadening their knowledge, and fostering their sensitivity and openness to multiculturalism. These aims will be achieve by creating an innovative curriculum in the scope of multicultural journalism, running series of workshops for journalism students, shooting a reportage, preparing an interactive educational package and a project-related website. This kind of in-depth training approach will enable young journalists to introduce a new media vocabulary related to cultural diversity by focusing on its inspiring and not destructive values. Additionally, secondary school pupils, attending journalism classes and participating in the project, will gain skills in understanding "multicultural journalism" through creating and running the project website.
