Launched in Strasbourg, 29 June 2006

Français Deutsch Italiano РУССКИЙ    
In 1995 the Council of Europe marked the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the Second World War with one of its most successful campaigns, on the theme: "All Different, All Equal''.

It mobilised the young people of Europe around a common aim – to fight racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia and intolerance. Ten years later new issues face Europe – and a whole new generation is taking up the challenge. The new All Different - All Equal campaign was launched in June 2006 – and this time the horizons are wider.

This campaign aims to highlight diversity – celebrating the richness of our differences, whatever they may be. It has its roots firmly in the Council of Europe’s mission – to promote and protect human rights. Participation will be the key word, allowing everyone to play a part in building a better Europe , where everyone has the right to be themselves – to be different and equal.
