Hate-Speech threatens democracy and current developments on the Internet show that political education and media literacy can no longer be separated. We believe that there is a clear need for action to expand media skills to include digital media ethics competence because current information and education addressing media are no longer enough for taking responsible action in the digital society. The main focus of the training is learning about and to gain applicable knowledge of teaching methods that promote the awareness of digital values and empower youth to stand up against hate speech on the Internet through value-based work. The workshop will introduce participants to a tool kit of methods aimed at strengthening the personalities of youth, enabling self-reflection, promoting empathy, and dealing with diversity in order to apply the concepts and methods to their own work with youths.
The workshop will also provide a space for participants to contribute and discuss their own experiences and knowledge. Based on the Barcamp method, there will be sessions led by the participants themselves.
