The activities will take place online in the context of the International Day for Tolerance on 16 November and will focus on promoting a tolerant and friendly attitude towards refugees and solidarity with them. Furthermore, the importance of active involvement in helping people forced to flee war and supporting them in the process of integration into our society will be emphasized.
The CDA and the Equality Council have chosen the slogan “Tolerance – more than acceptance” for the planned activities, in order to remind that this is the main message of the International Day for Tolerance: tolerance implies not only passive acceptance, but also obligations to act and that it must be cultivated and defended.
Solidarity with refugees and showing a tolerant attitude towards them are topical issues in 2022 when millions of Ukrainians have been forced to leave their country or homes to seek refuge in safer places.
From 14-18 November, the CDA and the Equality Council will publish on their web pages and Facebook several materials featuring real stories of refugees from Ukraine reflecting the impressive mobilization, empathy and solidarity shown by Moldovans, their willingness to get actively involved in supporting refugees.
