Young people understand multiculturalism, but wonder: “How often is it used in practice?”
Датум: 12/15/2010

On 14/12/2010 Women Civic Initiative Antico organized a conference on the topic: “Youth and Multiculturalism: How do we see the spirit of multiculturalism”, held in hotel Continental, Skopje in order to motivate young people (university students in Republic of Macedonia, youth civil organizations representatives, youth forums of the political parties and other interested parties) to create an open and secure span for interethnic and intercultural interaction. They were invited to share their opinions, experiences and outlooks on the cultural challenges and suggest practical solutions for developing a multicultural society.

Within the “Youth Programme”, as part of the yearly programme of WCI Antico, so far different activities have been realized in order to animate the young population to become acquainted with the different cultures, systems of values as well as the existing similarities and acceptance of the differences. The “School of Multiculturalism”, initiated and implemented by WCI Antico, stimulated youth activism in the process of multiculturalism development, peace intergration, strengthening of the dialog and mutual bond and valuation.
Young participants in the Conference showed good will and readiness to accept multiculturalism as part of our everyday life. It also pointed out the barriers and problems which they face in their environment based on:
-prejudice and stereotypes
-misunderstanding and ignorance of various entities and values they cherish
-ghettoization in certain local environments and insufficient communication with the other community members
-lack of political will to overcome the existing weaknesses
The recommendations that emerged as a result of the constructive discussions and [practical examples of the participants emphasized a few key segments which need to be addressed in order to improve the practical implementation of multiculturalism:
- questioning their own values and outlooks as well as a critical self-analysis
-greater solidarity, understanding and tolerance of the differences
-strengthening and respecting the established mechanisms for practical implementation of the multiculturalism
-education in the family and in the educational system from an early age
-communication and dialog should be the basic means of bringing communities together
-positive incentives and values should be promoted through expanding the network of supporters and implementers
