In order to educate the teachers about inequality issues, educators need to enhance their knowledge about the dimension of inequality and daily life in different parts of the world. It’s also necessary to raise awareness about inequalities to make the students empathise with the discriminated people. The objective in education is to enable the student to evaluate inequalities, recognise their causes, and understand the steps everyone needs to do to reduce them.

  • Solidarity action

    This area is related to the capacity of people to promote solidarity actions and support solidarity organisations. It covers the concrete help and support that young people can offer. This support can consist of monetary donations or voluntary work at a local level, fundraising actions or dissemination campaigns about projects and issues related to hunger or poverty around the world. The dissemination actions can also be oriented on adopting new and healthy lifestyles which respect human rights in the Global South and which are related to fairways of consumption. Solidarity action should be also related to supporting disadvantaged youngsters and minorities in your country.
