"One of my personal motivations to work with this project was my concerns regarding my own views regarding religion - Islam being one - and I wanted to dig deep into the concept of Islamophobia and so far I have learned a lot which will support me when working against xenophobia in general and Islamophobia in particular."

- Karin Wouda, Project manager Escape the Phobia

Aim

Escape the phobia aims to reduce the prevalence of xenophobia and intolerance among young people aged 15-20 years old in the Örebro region and to provide teachers and youth leaders with new innovative tools to do this. 

Objectives

  • We have developed and tested three different methods to achieve the goal of reducing the incidence of xenophobia and intolerance among young people aged 15-20
    which are spreadable.

  • We have spread the methods to increase knowledge about Islamophobia, Afrophobia, and Homophobia to at least 300 people aged 15-20 in the Örebro region through various activities and at least 300 people aged 15-20 online.

  •  At least 75% of people feel that the methods have reduced their attitudes towards xenophobia and intolerance

  • The methods have been disseminated to at least 1000 teachers and youth leaders in Sweden.
