A campaign to fight against prejudice and claim diversity as a core value of global citizenship.
WHAT IS #WithoutPrejudiceRCM?
The #WithoutPrejudiceRCM campaign is part of the Red Conecta Migración project, promoted by the Esplai Foundation, which aims to fight prejudice and claim diversity through reflection, awareness-raising and the creation of training resources for citizens. We consider information and communication technologies (ICT) as allies of social transformation and as essential to improve critical thinking skills and fight against racism, discrimination, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance.
In this space, we denounce the misinformation and hoaxes that are spread online and generate prejudice and discrimination between certain groups or people. We trigger awareness and reflection in citizens regarding the maelstrom of information that goes around our connected world and that resonates negatively in society. We want our society to be equipped with the tools to denounce misinformation and thus develop a critical vision of its own. For this reason we provide you with training content, so that you can embark on this fight for diversity.
Through the exhibition of #WithoutPrejudiceRCM, where we have chosen to show the emotions generated by prejudice and the values that support a committed citizenship. This travelling exhibition has already visited many organisations, on loan, and has been built in an original format in cardboard boxes so that it can be adapted to any space. It is the result of two social photography workshops: Prodiversa – Progreso y Diversidad and the Asociación Marroquí para la Integración de los inmigrantes in Málaga, where participants reflected on violence and prejudice and then took pictures of each other, thus expressing their emotions. It is accompanied by an educational proposal to become aware of how people develop and perceive prejudices and stereotypes, so that we can reflect, move on to action, and transformation (Prodiversa-Progress and Diversity and Esplay Fondation (2019) Educational Proposal #WithoutPrejudiceRCM). Please contact us if you are interested in booking the travelling exhibition!
We equip citizens and organisations with training resources to provide tools and contribute to the empowerment of all people in the fight against racism, xenophobia and any other type of intolerance.
We hold an annual cycle of reflection on “Migrations and processes of inclusion in the current context”. Each year it focuses on a specific topic, with experts from different fields with different perspectives, where we share good practices from other social entities and/or public administration.
When we discovered that information was a business, the truth ceased to matter.
AND HOW DO WE FIGHT PREJUDICE?
We can fight prejudice with the most powerful tool: knowledge. With our training workshop “Don’t Be Fooled!” we give you the keys and tools to debunk hoaxes and to be able to verify and confirm the information that spreads on the Internet and social networks.
#WithoutPrejudiceRCM campaign is part of Red Connecta Migración program, through which we fight to reduce inequalities within migrant and alternative racial communities. We undertake various actions such as workshops, exhibitions and training courses to help make visible the prejudices that we face every day in the information society.
The workshop “Don’t Be Fooled!”
The free online workshop “Don’t Be Fooled!” includes content and training resources to learn how to truly recognise a hoax by corroborating information distributed on the Internet.
These training resources are part of DigComp 2.1, The Digital Competence Framework for Citizens, a tool designed by the European Commission to improve citizens’ digital knowledge, skills and attitudes.
In collaboration with the journalistic platform Maldita, we have created 5 training videos, 5 infographics and a toolkit to enable you to acquire digital skills and encourage your autonomy and critical thinking about what is spread on the Internet.
We teach you how to check sources, how to identify if the information is reliable and even if the photos are real or have been edited!
In our society, we place more importance on the immediacy than on the veracity of information.
Help us not to be fooled and to create together a critical and egalitarian society by taking the test and downloading the content.

What are digital skills and why should we promote them?
DigComp 2.1 is a European reference framework that identifies the ICT tools and attitudes to improve citizens’ digital competence. It has been developed to serve both as a diagnostic of people’s skills and as a roadmap for the future of e-inclusion. There are self-diagnostic skills tests, such as the Ikanos test.
What specific digital skills will be developed by the “Don't Be Fooled!” contents?
We will work on the development of the digital skills that are framed in DigComp 2.1, the European reference framework on digital skills for citizens. The DigComp 2.1 framework groups all digital skills for citizens in 5 main areas with different sub-areas representing levels of competence and knowledge.
The training resources “Don’t Be Fooled!” focus on the development of the following competence areas:
- Competence 1.1. Browsing, searching and filtering data, information and digital content: To articulate information needs, to search for data, information and content in digital environments, to access them and to navigate between them. Identify and update personal search strategies.
- Competence 1.2. Evaluating data, information and digital content: To analyse, compare and critically evaluate the credibility and reliability of sources of data, information and digital content.
- Competence 2.2. Sharing through digital technologies: To share data, information and digital content with others through appropriate digital technologies. To act as an intermediary, to know about referencing and attribution practices.
- Competence 2.5. Netiquette: To be aware of behavioural norms and know-how while using digital technologies and interacting in digital environments. To adapt communication strategies to the specific audience and to be aware of cultural and generational diversity in digital environments.
- Competence 5.2. Identify needs and technological responses: To assess needs and to identify, evaluate, select and use digital tools and possible technological responses and to solve them. To adjust and customise digital environments to personal needs (e.g. accessibility).
- Competence 5.4. Identify digital competence gaps: To understand where one’s own digital competence needs to be improved or updated. To be able to support others with their digital competence development. To seek opportunities for self-development and to keep up-to-date with the digital evolution.
