About the project:

Hate speech online is of great concern especially among young people who use massively social media to communicate and interact. According to a recent survey on hate speech developed by the council of europe, 83% of the respondents have encountered hate speech online. Due to the amount of time they spend on internet, young people are the first recipient of these hateful narratives and very often they do not have necessary tools to critically understand and face this phenomenon. The youth exchange media transformers: deconstructing hate speech through alternative narratives was designed in order to raise awareness on the topic of online hate speech and provide young people with skills and tools to counteract this phenomenon and create a new narrative.
