Project name: Stay Online and Safe

Country: Turkey

Date: December 9 – 19

Youth exposure to high levels of cyberbullying and hate speech in the public sphere has a significant impact on selfconfidence and self-esteem. This situation leads to exclusion and stigmatization. Some of the national minorities or many immigrant youth are in a state of hiding or rejecting their own identity, as a result of marginalization and discrimination, due to the desire to be accepted by others. Therefore, young people who face different types of hate speech or online harassment -especially young minorities or immigrants- need to feel safe to develop their self-esteem and self-respect.

This youth exchange goal is to develop special skills to help youth deal with the different types of online discrimination they face.

The age of the participants: 18 – 25 years old, team leader 18+.

Accommodation and meals during the project will be free of charge, travel expenses will be reimbursed upon return.
