Respect, Review, Release HRE. Report, React, Respond to hate speech
, 1st – 7th August 2016, LondonEurope is built on the diversity of distinct cultural, religious and social traditions embodied in the cultures of its countries
It is home to people of many different racial, ethnic, religious and national backgrounds, and its economy and cultures have been enriched by the contributions of migrants from around the globe.
In an increasingly globalised world, migratory movements will continue to shape European society. However, migration in Europe is often criminalised and has severe implications for human rights. Promoting mutual understanding and respect for diversity, along with countering all forms of intolerance and discrimination, must today, more than ever, be absolute priorities for the international community, in order to maintain peace and stability at both the global and regional scope. The Council of Europe's No Hate Speech Movement (NHSM) campaign
was set up to mobilize young people in awareness-raising and acting on the issues related to hate speech and human rights online
The thematic focus of the campaign in 2016-2017 will be Antisemitism, Sexist hate speech, Refugees, Root causes of violent extremism, Counter-narratives, and Reporting and Education.
This training course aims to:
- Promote human rights (HR) among young people and their role as citizens, to contrast discrimination based on background in the process. Explore ways young people can use both offline and online tools to exercise and defend democratic rights use them to engage and influence political decision related to Human Rights (HR) and Human Rights Education (HRE).
- Empower young people of our local partner in the UK with tools and methodologies on HRE in order to start a common campaign in the UK and to support participants to implement concrete actions through their organizations, implementing new projects and positively influence local authorities on the importance of HRE.
