Equality, non-discrimination and anti-racism are the themes at Diversity Day, a youth event organised on 14 November 2007 in Vienna. Under the theme «chancen=gleich», Diversity Day seeks to make young people aware of the objectives of the 2007 European Year of Equal Opportunities for All. The event is open to the public and will gather around 1,500 young people from Vienna and neighbouring Hungarian towns.
In cooperation with the City of Vienna and local school authorities, Diversity Day offers a programme full of action, information and discussion.
The young participants will have the possibility to participate in workshops, engage in debates, and to interact with NGOs working against all forms of discrimination. On stage, music and show acts will demonstrate the entertaining side of diversity. More information at the event’s website (in German): http://chancengleich.fra.europa.eu/»
