NEw CHapter – NEtwork of Cooperation against Hate

“NEw CHapter: Network of Cooperation against Hate” is a 15-month and 4-country (Greece, Italy, Denmark and UK) project that aims to provide space and support for cross sectoral cooperation of organizations and institutions that work with young people in formal/non formal education on combating hate speech and promote human rights education (HRE). More specifically, NEw CHapter will bring together Youth NGOs, an international network, 2 schools, a counseling body and a municipality in order to strengthen their capacities in international cooperation and develop competences on identifying and combating the different forms of hate speech and discrimination and promote the human rights education.

OBJECTIVES

  • to encourage and strengthen transnational cooperation among the participating organizations and support their staff’s capacity building on how to tackle hate speech, bullying and discrimination through joint training with the use of non formal and formal education methodologies
  • to explore and share experiences, tools and methods among the partners in order for both direct participants and institutions to get new insights and knowledge on HRE, and gain social, intercultural, critical thinking competences for a more inclusive education, training and youth field
  • to create a cross sectoral sustainable network of inclusion ambassadors that will spread the ideas of “No Hate Speech Movement” on organizational and community levels through local and online activities to reach a wider audience supporting the promotion of inclusive and peaceful societies
  • to generate synergies and partnerships between the participating organizations and support the exchange of effective methods, opportunities and challenges in local and European youth work in reaching out to marginalized young people and in preventing racism and intolerance among local youth.
