The Tenerife Anti-Rumors Strategy group, from Juntas En la Mame Dirección, has developed, through the University of La Laguna, training on intercultural skills specifically aimed at working with young people. It is aimed at organizations, both public and private, or from the third sector. The course has been aimed at completing the offer of the entities that target the youth group and has been developed in a blended format.
Tenerife brings together more than 170 international origins and it is essential “to move towards a situation of intercultural coexistence that promotes the inclusion of all people”. For this, it is necessary to improve the skills of those who work with youth. This is the foundation of the course that was developed in five modules.
These conferences dealt with increasing knowledge of cultural diversity on the Island; understand the concepts of interculturality and intercultural skills or address terms such as prejudice, stereotype, discrimination, racism, cyberracism, hoax and rumor or disinformation. Also promote intercultural dialogue and promote the contrast of information, from a critical, anti-racist and inclusive perspective.
