Visions for a More Inclusive Society
We are thrilled to announce the winners of the ACCT (Anti-Racism & Civic Courage Training) poster competition. Launched earlier this year, the campaign sought to encourage public engagement in the fight against racism, xenophobia, and discrimination in communities across the European Union.
About the Campaign
The ACCT project is a collaboration between six partner organizations across Europe, committed to reducing hate speech, discrimination, and hate crimes in both urban and rural areas. The poster competition was an integral part of our awareness-raising campaign and was aimed at inviting people from all walks of life to share their vision of an equitable society. The campaign will reach 600,000 people both online and offline through various media channels, including social media, newsletters, print media, and a visual campaign on public transportation in Denmark & Germany.
We are immensely grateful for the overwhelming response we received: more than 50 entries from 7 different countries! Each poster was a testament to the talent and social commitment of our participants.

About the Poster: “I want to emphasize the value of empathy for those who suffer any form of discrimination, focusing on racism. I dream of an inclusive society, and I know it’s possible if we all want to be a part of it.”
The winning posters will be an essential part of the ACCT Awareness Campaign, reaching audiences through various platforms, including a visual campaign on public transportation in Denmark & Germany. They will also be available for download on the ACCT website.
We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone who participated and helped make this competition a success. Stay tuned for more initiatives from ACCT as we continue to strive for a world free from discrimination and hate.
Congratulations to the winners, and thank you for being part of this important journey towards a more inclusive society!
