Positive narratives on integration
This year the 18th European Week for Regions and Cities goes online! This workshop, which is organised by the URBACT city network Rumourless Cities, will take place on 12 October, 09.30-11.00 (CET), through ZOOM.
Cities across Europe have been developing strategies to address the rise in xenophobic populism and hate speech reinforced by traditional and social media, which often act to increase segregation and deepen divides. The key to this has been developing a city-wide approach combining strong political leadership with grassroots action and campaigns by dispelling misinformation and rumours and deconstructing stereotypes. The aim of this workshop is to share innovative political strategies and case studies developed by cities that are part of Rumourless Cities, an URBACT Transfer Network.
