Radicalisation Awareness Network design competition

The ‘European Remembrance Day for Victims of Terrorism’ (Remembrance Day) is an important day to pay tribute to all victims of terrorist attacks. Organised by the European Commission, in close cooperation with the RAN Victims of Terrorism Working Group, Remembrance Day takes place every year on 11 March, the day of the 2004 Madrid attacks. To increase awareness of Remembrance Day, RAN has this week launched a new ‘design competition’ for a visual identity for the next event in 2021. This special edition newsletter contains more information about the competition and how you can get involved, as well about the Remembrance Day itself.

RAN has launched a competition for schools across the EU to create a new design for the European Remembrance Day for Victims of Terrorism. The aim of the competition is to increase awareness of the European Remembrance Day and open up a conversation about the impact of terrorism on individuals.

To do this, schools and teachers will be provided with information packs about the competition, as well as Remembrance Day and the RAN Victims of Terrorism Working Group. Pupils between the ages of 15 and 18 will be invited to create a design for a new visual identity for Remembrance Day.

Schools will be asked to submit designs to a jury, consisting of RAN practitioners, European Commission representatives and youngsters, by 31 December 2020. The winning design will be presented at the next Remembrance Day on 11 March 2021 and will become a symbol of remembrance for future events.
