Launch of a joint anti-racism campaign between UNESCO and the Spanish soccer team F.C. Barcelona

It will kick off at F.C. Barcelona’s match against Osasuna on 24 March at Barcelona's Camp Nou Stadium with messages rejecting racism. A number of activities will follow throughout the year, including a press conference (date to be announced) at which Barcelona players will add their voices to the rejection of racism.
The campaign is a new initiative produced by the partnership between UNESCO and F.C. Barcelona, signed in November 2007. The previous (2008-2009) project, “Youth Voices Against Racism”, in collaboration with the European Parliament and UNESCO’s European Coalition of Cities against Racism, involved young people aged 15 to 18 in local policy-making and the design of anti-racism activities. Many of the suggestions they made will be put into practice in this new campaign.
