Join the YAIF adventure !

YAIF (Young Europeans formulate Antiracist Initiatives for the Future) is a European project run by Coexister and Fryshuset, and supported by the European Commission.

For 2 years, 3 groups of 10 young people from France and 10 young people from Sweden will be able to lead their own anti-discrimination project 🎯

Participants will be selected to present their projects at a special event in Sweden in September 2024! 🔑

The third group, now!

Are you aged between 18 and 26?

Join the YAIF project!



In May 2023 and June 2023, meet your team and create your own dynamic! You’ll also meet the Swedish team!

From May 2023 to June 2023, you will be trained on Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, anti-Asian racism, anti-black racism and civic engagement in Europe, indigenous perspectives on racism and radicalisation and conspiracy theories in Europe today. You’ll also be trained in methodology: storytelling, non-violent communication and project management!

From September 2023 to November 2023, you and your team will have 10 weeks to put together the project of your dreams: an event, a communication campaign, an awareness campaign, videos or even a podcast! You’ll have free rein and Coexister will be there to support you!

In November 2023, present your project at an online evening with the Swedish participants!

In September 2024, selected participants will be invited to present their projects in Stockholm, Sweden!
