Burgas students seek the role of tolerance as a unifier against hatred

Representatives of nine leading Burgas high-schools will discuss the manifestations of hatred in the modern world and ways to counter them. They will participate in a round table on the topic: “Tolerance as a unifier against hatred”, which will be held on November 14 at 5.30 pm in the large hall of the Regional Administration. The event is dedicated to the International Day for Tolerance – November 16 and is conducted with the support of the Burgas Regional Administration under the Communication Strategy of the Republic of Bulgaria for the European Union.

Center for Bulgarian-Jewish Cooperation “Alef” is the initiator of the round table and its main purpose is to educate the young people in the spirit of humanism. Burgas became the first city in the country which have a special zone of tolerance and this is also an Alef’s initiative.

The main purposes of the discussion are to understand the concept of “tolerance” and its role in changing the behavior and attitudes of young people. The participants in it will understand the terms “democracy”, “understanding”, “nobility” and “humanism” as a counterpoint in the language of hatred.
