Anti Racism/Anti Fascism
the Ecumenical Network for Youth Action is an ecumenical network of youth, women, diaconial, children's, roma/sinti, justice and peace/reconciliation organisations active in over 48 countries around the world.
Interethnic conflicts, human rights violation, intolerance, nationalism and racism are, together with low eco-environmental awareness, main threats to stability of the present world. Globalisation and growing multiculturalism in nation state societies bring these issues to the attention of many policy makers as well as ordinary people. Teachers may play a very progressive role in the process of combating intolerance and racism and can articulate the bottom-up policies for social change. Teachers organised into an international network can use this space for exchange of information, experience and as well as for lobbying at higher levels of policy making.

A Sign of Judaism from Central Europe
haGalil onLine is one of the largest and most diverse Jewish WebSites in the World. Diversity is not just an idealistic goal, but an obvious reality to everybody dealing with jewish issues. It has always been our strength, whilst intolerance and separation have always weakened the whole of the Jewish People.
haGalil onLine is published mainly in German. We live in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. One of our goals is to document, that Judaism is still alive here. We started out of mere idealism - and just carried on, when we saw how many people responded to our site.
