Be Subversive!

December 21st, 2017

The AntiRumours Handbook 2018 is the result of the work of hundreds of people from more than 25 cities in different countries who have contributed decisively to the development and enrichment of the antirumors strategy (originally developed by the city of Barcelona): many municipal technicians who coordinate and participate in the day-today strategies of the cities; local political leaders who have decided to launch a city strategy that promotes inclusion and critical thinking; professionals from different organisations and civil society actors such as NGOs, schools, cultural and sports centres, associations of neighbours, parents, immigrants and diverse minority groups, trade unions, universities, foundations, entrepreneurs and some companies and the citizens who have decided to become “antirumours agents” to challenge prejudices and stereotypes in their day-to-day lives.

Dani de Torres Barderi dedicates the new Intercultural Cities AntiRumours Handbook from CoE’s Intercultural Cities platform “to the thousands and thousands of anonymous “antirumour agents” that exist in the world and who, without being aware of it, contribute to the promotion of critical thinking and to questioning preconceived ideas, even if this often means going against the grain.”
