Project name: Don’t ignore, act
Date: March 28 – April 5
Nowadays, hate speech is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as a “public speech that expresses hate or encourage violence toward a person or group based on something such as race, religion, sex or sexual orientation”. This is the most widely accepted definition, but as the United Nations reminds it, there is no common definition of hate speech accepted regarding Human Rights.
In a context of raising influence for populist movements in Europe, which tend to promote and even encourage the usage of hate speech, increasing the xenophobia and LGBTIQphobia in their country, tackling hate speech became an emergency.
This training course is dedicated to stop hate speech and encourage to act more tolerantically.
The age of the participants: 18+.
Accommodation and meals during the project will be free of charge, travel expenses will be reimbursed upon return
