No more time 4 hate
About the training course: “No more time 4 hate” is a mobility of youth workers, KA1 Training Course, under Erasmus+ and will be implemented by Asociación PROJUVEN. The training course will take place in Torremolinos (Málaga area), Spain and it will involve 20 youth workers from 6 different countries (Poland, Italy, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Spain).
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights both prohibits discrimination and protects freedom of expression. It is well-established in international human rights law that the right to freedom of expression, though not absolute, is a fundamental right which may only be restricted in certain limited circumstances. Hate speech is one of the most frequent examples of abuse of this right. Indeed, all the recent terror attacks have reminded us of the urgent need to address illegal online hate speech. Social media is unfortunately one of the tools that terrorist groups use to radicalise young people and racist use to spread violence and hatred. The main aim of “No more time 4 hate” is to equip youth workers with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop practical tools and counter-arguments to online hate speech which they can use in work with young people in their local communities.
The project will use non formal learning methodology including methods such as: ice breakers, energizers, name games, reflection groups, working into intercultural subgroups, facilitated discussion, creative presentations, simulation, case study, and debates.
The project will involve 20 participants, 3 for each of the Partner Countries and 4 for Spain and Italy between 18-35 years old. The project is implemented by 6 NGOs and financed by the European Commission through Erasmus+ programme.
For the participants’ selection the following criteria will be taken into consideration: Mix of existing and experienced youth workers but also youth workers who are new or newish to human rights and online hate speech topics. This will allow a good dynamic in discussions and for learning to take place both ways. The more experienced youth workers will be able to share their experience with hate speech topic and at the same time will gain new ideas and
approaches from those youth workers new to the topic.
