Fair treatment is a basic right in the EU. It is illegal to discriminate on the grounds of a person’s age, disability, gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. Yet only one-third of EU citizens are fully aware that they are legally protected against discrimination.
Getting the message across that Europe values diversity and is taking discrimination seriously is crucial for the success of its anti-discrimination measures. Raising awareness of anti-discrimination laws is vital to make rights known, used and understood. It is also crucial to facilitate a debate on the benefits and challenges of diversity within society.
The EU is supporting an information campaign “For diversity. Against discrimination” across Europe, to make more people aware of their rights and responsibilities. It features public events, awards for journalists and competitions for young people.
The European Year of Equal Opportunities for All marked the biggest campaign to date. Political leaders made a commitment to equal opportunities in their countries, while hundreds of debates, exhibitions and other events took place in schools, on the streets and in workplaces across Europe.
Raising awareness among employers and people in general of the impact that anti-discrimination legislation can have on their lives is vital. Therefore, workshops, seminars, conferences and other events and activities as well as ways of disseminating information have been organised at both EU and national levels. Awareness-raising activities take the form of both one-off events and long-standing information campaigns and projects.
