PLEDDG Project joined the “Inclusion 2017” International Online Campaign with the hashtags #Inclusion2Me and #InclusionMeans. The campaign was launched by the Government of Canada to draw the world community’s attention to global problems such as the rise of populism, xenophobia and extremism, to push respective social media discussions forward, and to further elaborate the policies and programs aimed at facilitating inclusion in the society.
The “Inclusion 2017” Campaign started on November 10 and ended on December 10, 2017 – on Human Rights Day, an international holiday celebrated to honor the proclamation of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.
The “Inclusion 2017” Campaign centered on the concept and meaning of inclusion in society. As part of the campaign, social activists, experts, politicians, statespersons, and representatives of diplomatic establishments were sharing their understanding of the “inclusion” concept and discussed economic, social and cultural benefits of inclusion for every member of society.
PLEDDG Project prepared a number of short video clips in which prominent Ukrainian politicians, statespersons, and social activists were asked to answer the key question of “Inclusion 2017” International Campaign – “What is inclusion for you”?
