On 18th February Irena, Alina and Gabriel gave a Youth Club lecture for young Moldovans on the topic of prejudices. The main goal was to raise the participants’ awareness concerning the power of prejudices. Since it is hardly possible to have no prejudices at all, it is very important to reflect on them and to realize, that most of them are not true.
In order to achieve this goal, the participants were asked to imagine themselves as landlords who had to choose five potential tenants from a list. The way they ranked the given characteristics made them think about their values. Afterwards, the participants had the opportunity to discuss their decissions in the group. During the session, they realized the importance of an open-minded attitude towards each other and that prejudices can be refuted by getting to know each other better.
