Tuesday, 05:30 PM - 07:00 PM (CET), Oak Room

The BLM movement, which has become more visible in Europe in recent months with the death of George Floyd, puts its finger in the wound and shows that silence makes us all complicit. It calls on everyone to develop an attitude that racist cases should be taken seriously, no matter where they happen. In our workshop we will look at the past and presence, what role intersectionality, colorism and tokenism plays in this and how the movement is developing in our home towns and how young people's activism impacts the future and how to provide good self-care.
