A Year with No Hate: Financial support for small projects in your movement

September 21st, 2017 3:12 pm

Every day we are witnessing and facing discrimination and hate speech towards different groups of people or individuals in our communities, on the internet and on a global level. With all the conflicts, war and poverty the fear of the unknown, the fear of the otherness is increasing and extremism and human rights violations take place.

For our organisation, 2017 is “A Year with No Hate”, as WSCF-Europe joined the Council of Europe’s No Hate Speech Movement. Sharing the same vision and the same goals we would like to encourage you to join us and develop a few ideas on how we can help your SCM and support the “Year with No Hate” campaign. We recognise that the reality varies from country to country and that different SCMs have different priorities and needs, yet we believe this is something that is very relevant for everyone, as our common fight is against those who spread the hate and victimize refugees/migrants and other marginalized or disadvantaged groups.

We would like to inform you that WSCF-Europe is offering a small grant ONLY to the Student Christian Movements for your activity/idea to become reality. The Regional Office would also like to help you plan and organize the event or activity you have in mind, so that it becomes an initiative that we work towards accomplishing together. Your activity or event idea can be something small, but very significant like:

All of the proposed activities should be implemented until 20 December 2017. Project programme and financial reports should reach the WSCF-Europe no later than 31 December 2017.

If you think you idea has what it needs to bring us and your SCM together in the fight against hate speech and discrimination, don’t hesitate to fill in the online application form by  15th October (extended).

Please note that the financial support is available for SCMs only. If you need any assistance or have any questions, don’t hesitate to write us at .

The financial support that WSCF Europe offers to SCMs is possible through the funding received from the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe. We are very grateful to our sponsors!
