THINK! – Don’t hate…but is it really an easy task?

We decided to promote critical thinking in this fight against hate. 

In order to do this we created a project we are inviting you to join and help us develop further. 

We want to create new approaches in ensuring that hate is countered through education and stimulation of thinking. 

For this reason we are gathering people from Greece, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Kosovo and Serbia to work on preventing and countering hate speech.

How we will do it?

Step 1: We created modules for you to become educators and peer educators helping prevent and counter hate speech.

Step 2: We organize a ToT for formal and non-formal educators to become Preventizers of hate speech.

Step 3: We plan Preventizers pilot programs and feedback on how we can improve what we do.

Step 4: We organize a training for peer educators willing to help us counter hate speech and become Counterizers.

Step 5: Counterizers pilot their work and tell us how we can improve it. 

Step 6: We create a Pool of Preventizers and Counterizers and support them to learn.

Step 7: We create some digital space where all of this knowledge can be multiplied online through e-learning. 

Now we are calling you to become a proud member of the Pool of Preventizers by joining us in the ToT for Preventizers (step 2)
