The kick off meeting of the project was held in Albacete on the 17-18th of February, 2017.

During the meeting, the project partners agreed on the methodology of the three main phases of the project and so, discussed about and planned the forthcoming mobility for youth workers to be organized in Zakopane, Poland in June.
In addition, CEPS Projectes Socials introduced the projects partners with the main outcomes and methodology of the “Internet: Creatively Unveiling Discrimination” (ICUD) project. The project has been funded by DG Justice and implemented by 6 project partners (5 grassroot organizations and 1 university) from five EU countries: Belgium, Italy, Romania, the United Kingdom and Spain. The project was aimed to provide a practical guide on how to unveil masked discriminatory practices: to show a way of becoming creative internet “prosumers”, who do not just passively “consume discriminatory contents” but actively produce material counteracting such conducts. The project website is still operational and can be accessed at: http://digitaldiscrimination.eu/
It was agreed that the Anti-discrimination Pack 2.0 shall be structured as the original one, including at least 12 best practices and 12 training activities.
During the meeting, the partners had also an opportunity to know better the facilities and work carried out of the Youth Centre. A technician from the Youth Centre gave a guided tour around the facilities of the Centre, introducing main departments and services offered for young people. Albacete Youth Centre or the youth department of the City Hall of Albacete is a department that develops politics of local youngsters.
