IEPF President meets with THE SAME Team
On April 24, the President of the International Eurasia Press Fund (IEPF) Umud Mirzayev held a meeting with three members of THE SAMEteam which represents Azerbaijan among 50 different countries, at the P2P Challenge, selected by the EdVenture Partners (EVP).
Team members talked about the aims of the P2P: Facebook Global Digital Challenge. As a part of the P2P Challenge they have to create their own social media campaign, select the most actual problems facing society and fight with the negative types of online speech across the local or global community.
After conducting a survey, THE SAME team selected racism as a problem, which is one of the main reasons for online hate speeches. Hence, THE SAME team is aiming to use different strategies and show that the people are all the same no matter of what race, nationality, religion, and culture belong they have.
IEPF President Umud Mirzayev thanked the team members for a very good initiative and said that IEPF is always ready to support the initiatives aimed at social development. As an organization with a long and outstanding experience of working with youth, the IEPF is ready to provide its assistance.
