Regional Training on Countering Hate Speech with ALF Nordic Networks and Council of Europe

On 3 - 6 April, the World Culture Museum in Gothenburg will host a regional training on countering hate speech through human rights education in collaboration with the Council of Europe and Anna Lindh Foundation network coordinators in Finland, Denmark and Germany. 

The training seminar aims to build participants’ competences to combat hate speech online and promote human rights on- and offline through human rights education and campaigning. It is organised in the framework of No Hate Speech Movement, a youth campaign by the Council of Europe mobilising young people to combat hate speech  online and offline and to act for human rights. The Campaign aims at reducing the levels of acceptance of hate speech and to develop online youth participation and citizenship, including in Internet governance processes.

The training will bring together civil society actors, youth workers, educators, non-formal education trainers, and NHSM campaign activists that work with youth on issues related to discrimination, racism and xenophobia and are in a position to implement the gained competences within the framework of the national campaigns and/or initiatives of the Anna Lindh Foundation national networks.

The training is delivered by professional Council of Europe trainers: Xavier Baro and Ramon Tena. 

This event is organised with the support of the Swedish Foreign Department, National Museums of World Culture, Finnish Institute in the Middle East, and Danmission Middle East.
