The project aims to foster a transnational network of young activists (aged 19-28) to combat hate speech and encourage social and civic participation through innovative training methodologies and collaborative work among European youth organizations.


This initiative seeks to counteract authoritarian, antidemocratic tendencies, and hate speech by activating a youth discourse through social networks, utilizing cultural codes and communicative resources. It will establish a network of young activists across the EU to fight against hate discourse and barriers to civic participation. By enhancing cooperation among youth organizations and creating an innovative training methodology, the project will empower young people to prevent and combat hate speech, promote equality and acceptance, and develop new forms of activism. It includes the creation of small, multimedia-coordinated territorial groups and the use of blockchain for skill certification and group coordination, aiming to improve organizational capacity and share best practices in addressing hate speech and sensitivity.


  1. Initial Youth Selection and SGYGs Formation:
    • Identification and selection of the first 5 Small Groups of Young Activists (SGYGs) members to participate in the Train the Trainer (TtT) program in Turin, Italy.
    • Completion of youth recruitment to form full SGYGs, consisting of 20 members each, through mapping neighborhoods and identifying minorities affected by hate speech.
  2. Training and Capacity Building:
    • Conduct a Train the Trainer session in Turin for the selected SGYG members and partner staff to equip them with necessary skills and knowledge.
    • National replication of the training where trained SGYG members organize training courses in their respective countries for peers, following the Turin training program.
  3. Development and Translation of Toolkit and Compendium:
    • Creation of the #HT IA Toolkit containing participative modules on understanding and combating hate speech online and offline, to be translated into partner’s national languages.
    • Development of the #HT IA Stories Compendium featuring real activist stories, also to be translated into the partner’s national languages.
  4. Pilot Actions and SGYGs at Work:
    • Online mapping of hate speech episodes and collaborative creation of responses (memes, videos, sentences) using a blockchain voting system for shared responses.
    • Offline activities to establish a support network for youth workers, reducing risks in physical spaces.
  5. Artistic and Political Expression:
    • Production of five video pills (3 minutes each) covering topics such as the history and significance of art as a political tool, engaging through social networks, street art, and fashion.
  6. Impact and Dissemination:
    • Organization of dissemination events at the beginning and end of the project to share results, achievements, and lessons learned with a broader audience.
