  • #0NL1NE #T0LER@NCE is a project focused on protection of human rights and European values in the web space. It will include 11 volunteers from four countries – Germany, Lithuania, Italy and Spain (3 long-term and 8 short-term) – and will last twelve months. Within the activities the young people will seek answers to hate speech manifestations in the internet due to racism, xenophobia, and all other differences stemming from gender, ethnic, social, religious and cultural characteristics. Activities will be held by two groups of volunteers
    -One group of three long term (12 months) volunteers
    -One group of eight short term (2 months) volunteers

    The project will be part of the large-scale international campaign “Young people against hate speech in the internet” initiated by the Council of Europe and will include three main aspects – youth online activity, creation of informational and awareness rising interactive materials and conduction of presentations and conversations with students and youth, which will enhance the attention towards the dangers of the hate speech in the online space. IOA team aims to reach distant and smaller towns and villages in the countryside where the international group of volunteers will be more noticeable and easily attracting young people to the topic of online tolerance in communication.

    To ensure the teaching process of the volunteers we will use the methods of non-formal education, through which to increase the knowledge and skills in prevention of and dealing with the negative effects from the use of hate massages in the online environment.
