More Equal Europe Together – Preventing Islamophobia Against Women & Girls
The meet project aims to prevent Islamophobia against women and girls in Europe by:
» Empowering key actors at local level to build a culture of tolerance and respect. The need to achieve mutual understanding and dialogue among different stakeholders is essential for a European society able to ensure to all citizens, especially the most vulnerable, the access to fundamental rights and equal opportunities.
» Fostering a positive narrative of Muslim girls and women engaging youth and young leaders. Youth are the key actors able to develop critical thinking and promote the importance of breaking stereotypes.
