From 26th to 30th October 2005, the European Youth Centres in Budapest and Strasbourg organised a symposium in Strasbourg under the headline "all different - all equal". The symposium celebrated the 10th anniversary of the European Youth Campaign against racism, antisemitism, xenophobia and intolerance by marking its continuation and restart.

The links with the 1995 Campaign are solid and concrete and they go far beyond just sharing the same slogan, all different -all equal. Social, political and technological change has opened the way for improvement in some areas, but also for an aggravated situation in many others. Today there are forms and manifestations of discrimination that did not exist a decade ago. In parallel to this, on the positive, there are also new means available for the fight against discrimination and intolerance. The new campaign is therefore characterised by both continuity and change.
