Countering Hate Speech

The Interactive Open Online Course for motivated youth willing to address challenging issues with action. 

‘Countering Hate Speech’ is the Interactive Open Online Course where participants learn about and discuss current challenges posed by hate speech in their communities and societies at large. Not only do participants engage in dialogue about the topic and get access to expert video lectures, they also collaboratively work towards creating a campaign to counter hate speech in various forms. This makes ‘Countering Hate Speech’  an action-oriented course where participants are inspired, share knowledge and learn from each other.

Overview

  • Start date: May 20, 2019
  • Duration: 5 weeks
  • Weekly time investment: 1-2 hours (preparation and assignments) +  2 hours (online group sessions)

Participants in this course will get the opportunity to review expert content developed by European Alternatives, with the support of the Foundation Remembrance Responsibility Future (EVZ) and the Mott Foundation. In addition, they are encouraged to putting their own experiences, values and perspectives on the forefront while engaging with peers through Virtual Exchange.

Participants will gain an understanding of what hate speech is (and what it is not); the various forms it can take; its causes and consequences; how it is regulated and what place it takes in our societies. In addition, this course aims to inspire and activate participants by addressing concrete examples, tactics and strategies of how to respond to hate speech.

This Interactive Open Online course is open and free of charge for any young person aged 18-30 residing in any of the Erasmus+ programme countries or Southern Mediterranean countries.  After successful completion of this course, participants are awarded an Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange Badge.
