The project:

In light of the concept of social isolation and measures that are a part of our lives during the pandemic process, it is reinforcing European values and strengthening the awareness of digital volunteerism in the youth in order to combat the increasing hate speech and xenophobia on social media platforms.

Specific Objectives:

-To share approaches aimed at improving mutual understanding, increasing dialogue and cooperation among young people from different cultural backgrounds and developing new projects together

-To develop knowledge and attitude about behaviours targeting hate speech by examining the prejudices and stereotypes that young people use/take for granted and encounter in their immediate environment and society.

-To develop young people’s understanding of European values, digital skills and competencies in order to increase their role and effectiveness in peacebuilding
