Anti-racist educational workshops delivered to a series of Inverclyde schools.
Show Racism the Red Card in partnership with Inverclyde Council undertook a series of anti-racist educational workshops in 24 schools in the Inverclyde Council area between January and March 2009.
Aims of the one-hour workshop included:
- To familiarise young people with the causes, consequences and forms of racism and equip them with a range of skills that will enable them to challenge racism.
- To enable young people to develop good relationships and respect the differences between people, regardless of a person’s race, ethnicity, nationality or religion.
- To help young people prepare to play an active role as citizens in a growing multi-racial society, and to prepare them for life experiences out with Scotland.
- To provide teachers with an easy-to-use teaching resource to enable them to educate for the above.
The anti-racist workshops were supplemented with an hours fun football coaching. It included emphasis on teamwork, healthy lifestyles and sportsmanship.
