This guide has been produced under the Council of Europe's Youth Campaign for Diversity, Human Rights, and Participation “All Different- All Equal”. The campaign provides an essential stimulus for common action to promote diversity, participation and human rights. It seeks to bring attention both to the issues themselves and the methods used to address them. Such mobilisation is vital if we wish to establish strong public awareness throughout Europe of these values.
Racism, social exclusion, disempowered minorities and deficient participation are problems that can neither be solved overnight, nor by singular efforts. These problems need sustained, long-term attention which focuses on changing basic attitudes, redressing structural injustices, empowering the socially excluded and enabling properly functioning democratic societies.
Education plays a key role in these pursuits and therefore needs to be at the centre of this campaign, and beyond. This guide is intended to support
campaigners, activists and educators to advocate and educate to reach these goals. The guide builds on the approaches and methodologies of Compass - the manual on human rights education for young people.

“Where should i sr? “ 
 A few ideas...
Go to the Campaign website at www.alldifferent-allequal.info and see what’sgoing onContact the National Campaign Committee in your country: ask what’s alreadybeing organisedTry out one of the activities in the next chapter with a local youth group ormake contact with your local schoolTry out one of the ready-made workshops in the chapter after that, or plan alonger event including them allHave a look at the new sections in
Compass
online dealing with participation,diversity, terrorism, remembrance, disabilism, intercultural dialogue and religion.Then build an event of your own.Ask yourself the following questions... or better still, run this as an activity witha group of young people, using the instructions from
“Where do You Stand” 
in
Compass
Where do you snd? 
No-one listens to young peoplePeople don’t participate because they don’t know how toEquality means no special treatment - for anyone!Equality means helping people to overcome obstacles that have been put in their wayA campaign can’t change anythingA society should be judged by how it treats people who do not feel a part of itThere would be fewer problems if immigrants returned to their own countriesWe mostly respect human rights in this countryI don’t judge people by the way they look Some human beings are more valuable than othersSecurity is more important than the human rights of a few individualsI can make a difference!
Read on - and start building your events!

2. rEaDY-to-go aCtivitiES
This chapter is really the campaigning best education companion: it contains the activitiesthat you can run with young people to introduce them to the issues, get them interested,and get them participating.
Wh’s n here? 
9 activities which relate to the campaign themes – 6 of which have been devel-oped specially for the campaignDetailed instructions on how to run them – including tips and advice on thingsto look out forIdeas for follow up and for action – including references to other activitiesBackground information, where this is necessary to run the activityAll of these activities can be introduced as ‘starters’: they are simple to run and do notrequire any particular knowledge either from yourself or from participants. They can alsobe run either as stand-alone activities, or as part of longer workshops – for example,those proposed in Chapter 3.
if you wn more...
You may be one of those people who always wants more. More background informationon the issues… more advice on running the activities… more activities, more ideas, moretheory. Or just – 
more
.Well - there is more! All of these activities have been taken from
Compass
, a manual whichwas developed for the Human Rights Education Youth Programme of the Council of Eu-rope and which has been updated for the purposes of the campaign.
Compass
is packedfull of every kind of ‘more’ you could possibly ask for (including everything listed above).Have a look at Chapter 4 of this guide for a brief outline of the contents, or go straightto the
Compass
website at www.coe.int/compass
where you can nd many other ideas
