From 17th  to 24th August in Thessaloniki, Greece, Kosova Young Lawyers (KYL) together with its partners has organized the second training within the project “Think! Don’t hate – Preventing and Countering Hate Speech”, named Training for Counterizers. 

Young people and youth workers from Greece, Montenegro, Serbia, North Macedonia, Belgium, Spain, Croatia and Kosovo have gathered together and were trained on knowledge and skills for utilising critical thinking in fighting online hate speech. They also worked on the development of innovative “Counterizerscurriculum and have prepared series of workshops for preventing hate speech in their local communities which will be implemented in the comming months. 

The main goal of the “THINK! Don’t hate” project is to fight hate speech in the online world by deconstructing and discrediting the narratives on which it is based, as well as by empowering young people to become the leaders in the fight against fake news, prejudice and hatred on the Internet.
