#CrushTheStereotype  21/06/2018

When the Youth Local Council Żabbar were invited to submit a project against Agenzija Zghazagh’s Youth Local Councils Programme 2017, they immediately knew what topic they wanted to tackle. #CrushtheStereotype was borne out of their wish to portray young people positively to balance out the mainstream filter which often tends to be negative.

And they did this by going round their own community – Żabbar to show how even the smallest of gestures can crush people’s stereotypes. Their work was documented in a video which they launched last week and which they are hoping is shared as much as possible so as to spread their message. Although males generally outnumber females in politics, this all girl group demonstrated that even these statistics stand to be challenged in future.
