My role in the project was to coordinate the national multi-stakeholders group for media monitoring and analysis and to advice on the drafting of policy proposals targeting no hate speech in national media.

”ACID: Active Citizens for Intercultural Dialogue” - The aim of the ACID project is to organize citizens’ panels exploring original and innovative methodology, with the potential to encourage citizens’ participation and to stimulate dialogue between European citizens and the institutions of the European Union on the importance of intercultural dialogue in the context of an increasingly multicultural society. My role was to organize citizens’ panels at local and national level and to participate in the transnational working group at the European level.

Being a transnational project, my role was to coordinate the national activities (awareness campaign, training courses) with young people from disadvantage groups in Romania.
