In a world where communication and information flow are more accessible than ever, the power of words cannot be underestimated. Unfortunately, with this ease of expression comes the darker side of speech – hate speech.
Hate speech poses a significant threat to the fabric of any society. It perpetuates discrimination, intolerance, and prejudice against individuals or groups based on their race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or other characteristics. As we strive to build a more inclusive and harmonious community, it is crucial that we collectively address and confront this issue head-on.
The Swedish network of the Anna Lindh Foundation is hosting an online workshop on understanding and countering hate speech delivered by trainers from MitOst horizontal school (Berlin).
The online workshop will take place over Zoom on 13 and 14 September at 09.30 – 12.00 CET. Participation in both days is mandatory.
