On 22.11.2019 we participated in the United Nations Mini-Model event organized by UNSA Granada and the Andalusian Youth Institute, in which we talked about the new walls we have created in Europe and we should roper.
More than 35 young people participated in the event held in the red room of the Faculty of Law of the University of Granada
30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, EUROPA sees “new walls” in society that endangers democracy. Only 42% of the citizens of East Germany consider democracy as the best form of government
In Spain and Europe you can feel and see new walls of disappointment and anger.
Our response in this experience is that there is openness, tolerance and help.
“AIFED” addresses legal issues and raises awareness about the values of Europe in particular.
“AIFED” faces the current challenges facing Europe in the face of growing Euroscepticism and political disenchantment. For youth, the removal of new walls is the key to shaping the future of Europe. We saw how Grenadian youth are committed to democracy and freedom and to overcome these “NEW WALLS”
We did a lot of activities about this fantastic proyect in memory of that fallen Wall and the new walls that we must broke, as our name says, this activities were, a “Protest March” about this New Walls that we have in Europe, we did it in the same way as the Berlin Wall protests marchs in the last century, sensitizing the polulation about this things.
We did there a lot of activities with politicians and students, showing to them how Europe problems are working in others countries of the community and how their own problems are working too.
From New Walls Spain we have decided to take the start of the project by first carrying out an awareness exercise with ourselves.
In doing so, we tried to uncover what the needs of Spain were prior to the knowledge of the New Walls; and we conclude that the whole of Spanish society had a very serious problem and was the “ignorance” of the European Union and its work, its most recent history, the reasons for our accession to the union , that is, we consider that society as a whole has a great misinformation with respect to the union to which it belongs.
In this workshop we treat the following walls of Spain:
- Youth Work:
In which the attendees expressed great concern about the qualification of the Spaniards and the fateful labor market in which we find ourselves, so that for a young man it is almost impossible to find a job after finishing his studies. For them, this was a big problem that will have a huge impact on the future, so it is better to prevent a wall than to create it.
They encompassed the issue of education in a broader sense by publicizing the profound misinformation in which people live, not because they cannot access information media, but because the population has not been taught to think for themselves, they insisted much in which a great problem or wall was Spain was the education of its inhabitants.
Attendees consider prejudice the basis and problem of all the differentiation or identity problems of Spain, they agreed that Spain was a multicultural country, so all Spaniards should be tolerant with respect to other areas of Spain, since there are numerous prejudices or teasing that affect the unit, considered that the prejudice was not the wall, but the spark that produces it.
- Global Spain:
The attendees also considered that Spain is still beginning to globalize and that one of the country’s problems is that its inhabitants still had a mental wall that closed opportunities to open their vision, try new projects, etc.
The law and values of the European European Union are committed to human rights, freedom and peace in Europe. To this end, the NEW WALLS Project intends to organize several conference and debate events, both in specialized circles and for all interested citizens. Through educational projects in schools and for students, we will address legal issues and raise awareness about the values of Europe in particular. We will also work for the historical development of law in European countries. Dialogue and exchange on different legal systems will be implemented through educational conferences and events.
The NEW WALLS / NUEVOS MUROS project, faces the current challenges facing Europe in the face of growing Euroscepticism and political disenchantment, in this sense, the removal of new walls is the key to shaping the future of Europe. Therefore, all the partners of the project, and the Town Halls of the cities in which it is developed, are committed to democracy and freedom and to never again separate us new walls.
