Training Course

19-27 March 2024 | Samobor, Croatia

Purpose of this project is to support development of competences of youth workers in the field of human rights, needed for challenging and combating sexist hate speech online through counter and alternative narratives.

The increase in sexist hate speech targeting young people, particularly girls, has become a concerning issue in online spaces. Unfortunately, sexism is pervasive and extends beyond the digital realm, manifesting in various forms in both online and offline social interactions. It infiltrates environments such as schools, families, social circles, public spaces, and workplaces. Compounding the problem is the lack of sensitivity and an inability to identify sexism due to its adoption of more subtle forms of expression.

A significant challenge lies in the normalization and acceptance of sexism, with individuals often regarding sexist jokes as something normal without fully comprehending the broader consequences, particularly on the mental health of young individuals. This normalization perpetuates a harmful cycle that needs to be addressed.

Content of the training will include following: understanding sexism, understanding situations
( legal frame, combating mechanisms, NGO activity etc.) at national levels of the partners, understanding how hateful narratives work in online surrounding, presentation of hateful narratives, step-by-step development of counter and alternative narratives, analysis of key documents and regulations regarding sexism at European level, potential and role of Erasmus+ and non-formal education in combating sexism.
