Countering Hate Speech Online Workshop
21 May, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Throughout the past year, communicating online has been more popular (and necessary) than ever before. While there are clearly many benefits to online communication, online hate speech poses an increasing threat. Hate speech can take on many different forms and is often not easily detected, and rarely efficiently countered. Most commonly, hateful comments and posts are reported, which can solve the problem in the short term but not sustainably.
This year’s World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, we want to contribute to raising awareness about the importance of safe online environments and the threat that hate speech poses to dialogue and development.
In collaboration with our partners Youth for Peace (BiH) and the ALTer Hate Campaign (BiH) we are organising an interactive workshop on May 21. Aiming to raise awareness about online hate speech, it will also equip participants with practical tools to counter online hate speech and help to create more peaceful and safe online environments.
