“No Hate” Youth Exchange is announced by WIYU (World Independant Youth Union)

Freedom of Expression vs Spread of Intolerance – two sides of a coin in an era of massive and rapid diffusion of communication.

`If hate speech offline is a problem that societies have recognized, and found the need to address, is online hate speech something that we can ignore? Of course not.`

In 2012, Advisory Council on Youth of Council of Europe started the No Hate Speech Movement, the campaign that aimed to combat the hate speech online in all its forms, and with this “No hate” project we want to contribute to making internet a safer place for young people and to prevent human rights violation online.

 

Dates: 8-17 December 2017 , Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Deadline for applications: November 15, 2017
