Youth Exchange

About the project: 

Youth exposure to high levels of cyberbullying and hate speech in the public sphere significantly impacts self-confidence and self-esteem. This situation leads to exclusion and stigmatization. Some of the national minorities or much immigrant youth are in a state of hiding or rejecting their own identity due to marginalization and discrimination due to the desire to be accepted by others. Therefore, young people who face different types of hate speech or online harassment -especially young minorities or immigrants- need to feel safe to develop their self-esteem and self-respect.
Above all, young people should develop special skills to help them deal with the different types of online discrimination they face.

Objectives:

  • To ensure that 38 young people from 6 countries have online responsibility during the implementation of the youth exchange; develop the ability to think critically and recognize fake news.
  • Increasing participation in the fight against fake news and online hate speech by including 38 young people from 6 countries in planning and running a campaign, informing about the negative effects of hate speech and online disinformation.
  • Promoting European values such as non-discrimination, tolerance and respect for cultural diversity, and developing social inclusion opportunities for 18 young people with fewer opportunities exposed to cyberbullying.
