Across Europe today social media and access to main stream media means a lot of information passes on to young people about many different subjects and issues. The use of social media creates a lot of opportunities for young people to be bullied and victimised or to make themselves extremely vulnerable. Many movements influence young people, get them caught up in saying things and being involved in things without fully comprehending the impact of their words or actions. Many young people are targeted by hate and violence because of who they are, where they come from, or something they did. We want to carry out this project to explore how the youth sector can work with this area of concern in a constructive way and in a way that is easy to implement and carry out in youth organisations and with young people. This training course will develop strategies for workers and young people to implement actions and activities in combatting hate and violence in all its forms.
The main objectives of "No Hate Speech": (1) to explore the concepts of hate and violence in all their forms, (2) to understand how we are influenced by and involved in hate and violence in our everyday lives, (3) to reflect on how hate and violence affects the communities our youth organisations are based in, (4) to reflect on how hate and violence impacts Europe and young peoples sense of being European, (5) to develop youth workers competencies in dealing with hate and violence in their work and communities, (6) to develop strategies for involving young people in combatting hate and violence, (7) to develop a sense of European citizenship and a sense of community, (8) to create and develop projects that will be implemented by young people in an active way in society.
To meet the objectives, methods of non-formal education will be used with a regard to individual needs and learning styles of the participants. Plenary inputs, theories, small and large group work, self-directed learning, online research, presentations, intercultural exchanges, group building, self-assessment, sharing, experiential learning and self-reflection will be used during the training course.
Activities of the training course include No Hate Speech Movement session, Self-Assessment and Reflection (SAR) session at the end of each day. Exploration of phenomenon of hate and an introspective self-reflection on it. The same process with the exploration and reflection on violence, hate and violence issues faced by young people in the communities of the participants, impact of hate and violence on young people.. The participants will develop an online research to find examples of hate speech from social and mainstream media from each participants home. Research on hate in Europe, different examples of hate speech and violence on a European level. The training sessions will also tackle the topic of positive aspects of European citizenship. A look at what competences are needed to tackle entire topic, hence a competence development workshops will be included in the program.
Planned results and impact envisaged and potential longer term benefits of the training course should be.
(1) Broader understanding of hate speech and the concept of violence. (2) Better understanding of the dangers faced by young people. (3) Participants are expected to create and implement a project / workshop and a long terms strategy that they will implement in their organisation. They will pass their knowledge and competences onto colleagues as a part of organisational development. All the projects should in some way have elements that are easy for young people to pass on to others, especially those still at school. (4) Partnerships could be developed between the youth workers and local schools as part of the long term strategy to raise awareness and take action against hate speech.
