About the project:
Hate speech in the public sphere takes place online and offline, and affects young girls and boys, women and men. Freedom of speech is an absolute value in any democracy, both for the public and for the media. At the same time, opinions and debates challenge us as hate speech are spread widely and frequently on new platforms for publishing. Hate speech may cause fear and can be the reason why people withdraw from the public debate, as a result important voices that should be heard in the public debate are silenced.
The problem about hate speech is that most of the people are not aware of what it is, that is why we with this project we want to combat ignorance and take a concrete step in making young people (and the citizens affected by the project) understand what can be done against the spread of this negative phenomenon. We want to carry out this project as a direct result of the organization’s aims and objectives. With this project we want to combine several factors, that are: creating awareness on hate speech, spreading the message of the defence of Human Rights, boosting creativity, giving young people instruments for the combat against the phenomena, which will meet in the activities carried out by the project creating awareness among the local community and the people affected by the project results.
We would like to implement a project which aims to:
■ Create awareness among the participants and the local community on the topic of No Hate Speech;
■ Fight ignorance on Hate Speech and its consequences among the local community;
■ Encourage young people to take concrete actions in the defense of Human Rights;
■ Support young people in finding instruments, boosting their knowledge and awareness on what institutions do on the subject;
■ Foster active youth participation, helping young people to become agents of positive change in their society and in Europe;
■ Develop a better understanding of the concepts of democracy, citizenship and participation;
