against Hate Speech
Project partners are going to develop a Web App in English, Italian, Greek
The #HateTrackers application and the complementary educational material will provide information, training and support to better understand the phenomenon of hate speech, be trained to detect it and act against it and to act in the event of being victims or witnesses of a situation of violation of Human Rights in this field.
The #HateTrackers app will also contribute to the specific goals:
Directly, providing young people, initially in the project countries and the at EU level, with useful tools that can help them dealing with on-line hate speech/bystanders/even as victims and become a more active and engaged citizens.
Indirectly, through didactic and instructional guide, with activities aimed to enforce the contents of #HateTrackers application in schools and other educational institutions.
The Web App will also provide psychological first aid to activists and victims to defend themselves from hate speech related traumas.
Each partner will set up working hours for online psychological first aid referring to their national network.
Such activity is going to be implemented in different steps:
Training of trainers (ToT)
in Torino – October 2023
such training aims to share the knowledge about the community-based approach SGU methodology among the partner and the first 5 SGUs members selected by the project organisations.
Completion of the SGUs
20 youth per partner country (between 14-25 years old and coming from various gender, sexual identity, ethnic, national and migrant background). The purpose of this unit is to ensure active participation and empowerment of youth in taking action for an issue (in this case the issue of hate speech) impacting their lives.
National replication of the training
each project partner will have then to replicate the training, as in Torino, in their national context to trigger a cascade effect among young people interested in join a SGU.
Empowering local communities
Each SGU will become the main point of the hate speech referral system for local organisations, schools and communities to tackle and answer hate speech episodes. The referral system will be publicized in an EU level conference, as well. All the partner organisations will be involved coordinated by CIFA.
