Ο2 Toolbox for youth workers
Following on from the knowledge acquired during the development of the IO1-EU comparative Research on hate speech, RAISE! Partnership worked on the IO2-Raise! Toolbox for youth workers to build resilience of young people against hate speech.
IO2 provides professionals working with young people, including those from minority groups and with fewer opportunities, with collected resources and material for inclusive, diverse and equal youth work. The aim of this IO is to empower youth workers to include intercultural learning and diversity component in their daily work to provide youth with necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to promote peace, intercultural dialog, against hate speech, discrimination and violence.
The Toolbox will contribute to prevent hate speech by focusing on developing critical thinking of young people and by creating safe spaces where youth can express their fears and their doubts. The Toolbox will allow youth workers to explore and integrate different innovative and creative approach, tools, methods and resources in their work with and for young people for promotion, education and practices of inclusive learning.
