Project “DANTE” was created as an outcome from research conducted by the project coordinator and partners, who had an opportunity to conduct online research in this area. During the research period we had a good opportunity to collect opinion, views and data of public, including young people on xenophobic, intolerant, antisemitic and racist views and distorted moral values. After discussion with our partners we noticed that thorough the countries we share the same problem – different forms of online intolerance and hate speech, visible also between young people and youth workers. Most effective tool for overcoming the aforementioned difficulties and problems is education, especially when it comes to youth. As we also developed training course and specific online tool to fight online hate speech our goal is to introduce these tools through non-formal education and teach them about the importance of tolerance and implementation of concrete solutions and actions.
Youth exchange in Bratislava
20. – 26. June 2021 (20 and 26 are travel days)
5 young people 18-30 yo + 1 group leader with not age limit
The Project will be implemented by the Bratislava Policy Institute in partnership with five partners – Czech republic, Hungary, Poland, Austria and Croatia. There will be 36 participants who will take part in the activities of this exchange that will last for 5 days in the City of Bratislava. The overall aim of the training is to improve competences of youth workers for being capable to invent and implement youth work methods and tools on preventing and dealing with online antisemitic hate speech among young people however not excluded to Jews, but also considering minorities such as Roma, refugees or migrants. We also aim to create intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, promote common values of freedom, tolerance, respect of human rights and reach young people to prevent violent radicalisation as well. As youth workers we often face violent behaviour on the internet and dealing with the topics of European values,
European history, heritage or online/offline hate speech they often face issues with modern antisemitism (connected with the work of NGOs, gaining financial support, helping refugees and minorities and doing voluntarily work). However, since this phenomenon is not observed and researched and taken into consideration, we often lack solutions and ideas how to react and what to do.
