Brazil hosts Global Forum against Racism and Discrimination

Brasilia, Nov 29 (Prensa Latina) The third edition of the Global Forum against Racism and Discrimination will take place in the state of Sao Paulo from November 29th to December 1st, under the motto "A race to the top: placing equity and racial justice at the forefront of development agendas."

The meeting will serve as a platform to launch the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Global Perspective against Racism and Discrimination, which offers regional views and data on the problems in the digital world.

According to organizers, the forum’s agenda includes roundtables, workshops and side events, which will address the narratives that contribute to various forms of racism and discrimination, and their current ramifications. Discussions will focus on topics such as developing inclusive policies, promoting gender equality, and improving the capacities of civil society.

The forum will also be used to address issues such as artificial intelligence and its role in perpetuating racism, the protection of the rights of indigenous peoples and how to strengthen the role of cities, as well as civic spaces and artistic and academic communities, and more appropriate modalities to leverage social philanthropy into addressing racial inequality.

The director of Humanities and Social Sciences at UNESCO, Gabriela Ramos, emphasized on the importance of public policies and the commitment of society in the fight against racism.
