Young people in Europe are being affected by increasing incidents of racism and discrimination. Antisemitism and prejudice against Muslims, Roma, LGBT+ and other ethnic or religious groups, is on the rise. Stories that Move was developed with the intention of challenging these issues and encouraging young people aged 14-17, to think critically about diversity and to reflect on their attitudes and choices. This interactive workshop provides a safe learning environment for students and educators.

This online tool is an inclusive approach that focuses on young people’s voices making all learners feel involved. This empowers students and educators to discuss sensitive and complex issues inside and outside of the their classrooms.

Educators can utilise this tool to set up digital classrooms, creating opportunities for debate.
