CHANGING WORDS CHANGES THE WORLD
Online hate speech is a worrying and complex phenomenon, which has deep cultural and social roots and brings new questions and challenges to the issue of freedom of expression on the web.
Only a collective commitment at the cultural and educational level can be the basis to counter it, promoting at the same time freedom and participation.
Silence hate aims at combating and preventing online hate speech against migrants and refugees by developing new and creative counter-narratives. An European media camp, training courses, workshops and media productions will involve journalists, activists, teachers and young people in Belgium, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Poland and United Kingdom. Moreover an online campaign covering the entire life of the project and national events will communicate and disseminate the activities and the results to the public.
