Everyday Racism app scoops another award
The UWS led Challenging Racism Project has again been recognised by the United Nations, with the Everyday Racism app announced as a co-winner of the UN PEACEapp competition.
Developed in partnership with All Together Now, as well as Melbourne and Deakin universities, the Everyday Racism app challenges people's ideas about racism by giving them the chance to walk in the shoes of someone who is subjected to abuse on a daily basis.
The PEACEapp award is organised by the UN Alliance of Civilisations in order to promote digital games and apps as venues for cultural dialogue and conflict management.
The award follows the app being named in second place in the 2014 Intercultural Innovation Awards, which promote new ways organisations are contributing to peace and prosperity in the world.
"By conducting vital research into racism, and developing new ways to change our country for the better, the University of Western Sydney is taking the lead in promoting a tolerant society everyone can enjoy," says Professor Kevin Dunn, who leads the Challenging Racism project.
Everyday Racism can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google play.
