During this year, we had to face very hard times due to the pandemic that completely affected our lives. We couldn' stay with the ones that we loved, we couldn't enjoy hanging out and everything just stopped for months. No skin colour was important. No economical situation was relevant. No culture was privileged. We were all united by one unique goal: to protect ourselves and our loved ones. But as we started to leave the quarantine, differences seemed to come back. We are sure that all of you know what has been happening in the USA, regarding black lives. Violence, discrimination and racism were coming all back again. Again, in these hard times of ours, that needed us to become all united, all a whole. We believe all lives matter since we are all humans.
Fundació Ludàlia invited ESN volunteers and international students to their photography workshop and we had tons of fun! The aim of this activity was to get together both ESN's and Ludàlia's members in a fun evening whilst taking photos and learning how to be in touch with your senses.

Our main goal was to raise awareness on this topic and to make people reflect on this important issue.
The goal of the activity was to raise awareness of the discrimination towards the LGBT community. With this aim, we firstly promoted an awareness campaign on our social media, inviting then our Erasmus to join the section in a movie night (shared via Netflix Party) on the topic. We displayed "Call me by your name".
The activity consisted in a Movie Night focused on the topic of Autism: in fact, we celebrated the International Day of Autism by launching a shared movie night with Netflix Party following an awareness campaign that we published on our social media (Instagram stories, as you can see in the pictures shared with Drive). We showed "The lighthouse of orcas", and after that we used Meet to cover the topic in detail and answer our Erasmus' questions.
