HateBusters! Empowering Youth Workers to Combat Hate Speech
Considering increasing issues with hate speech in both the real and virtual worlds, this project aims to improve the skills of the youth workers in dealing with hate speech and support young people affected by it. During the project, a campaign and a workshop will be developed to gather good practices in working with people from diverse backgrounds, such as minorities, immigrants, and refugees. Participants in the exchange will be between 18 and 35 years old, allowing a discussion and a broader look at the existing problem and the development of its solution. The training in Armenia will equip the participants with competencies and skills useful in fighting propaganda, deception, cyber-bullying, and stalking.
