A new contest launched on Twitter will give Arab youths a platform to express their vision for tolerance. Netizens can use #TweetForTolerance to talk about "coexistence, tolerance, human fraternity, respect for others, acceptance of differences, and other human values", and "reject all forms of extremism, intolerance and violence".

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance, launched the contest on Wednesday in cooperation with the Arab Youth Centre in Abu Dhabi and Twitter's Middle East and North Africa office.

Participants can tweet their tolerance messages in Arabic, English and French.

Champions of tolerance

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak said the ministry has trained a large group of 'Champions of Tolerance' of various nationalities residing in the UAE. The ministry has also trained a group of Arab youth from 12 countries to help them become leaders in "everything related to the values of tolerance by leveraging digital and social networking platforms".

"The next stage of youth orientation aims to protect future generations against extremism, intolerance and hatred. The launch of #TweetForTolerance competition is just the beginning of the ministry's interactive activities regarding Arab youth," Sheikh Nahyan said.
