About The Platform

The online platform ‘Say No to Hate Speech’ has been developed in the framework of a project funded by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe entitled ‘Say No to Hate Speech – Young People Empowered.’

The platform contains information on hate speech including a fact sheet on hate speech and resources relevant to the understanding of hate speech such as the governing national legislation and reports/documents drafted by national and supra-national organizations on hate speech. Such information is useful for young people, their parents or guardians, those working with young people and other individuals and groups who wish to find out more about hate speech. In addition, the platform includes educational resources that can be used with young people, by formal or non-formal educators, for purposes of combatting hate speech and/or developing the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for a human rights culture where solidarity and equality is embraced.

Furthermore, there is an online chat system which offers information for victims of hate speech as well as support and information for others such as parents, guardians and friends of victims. The working hours of the chat system are 18.00-21.00 Cyprus time every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday starting from the 15th March 2017. Also, users can send any questions regarding online and offline hate speech to support@notohatespeech.com and our team will respond within 24 hours.

AEQUITAS would like to thank the twenty young people who gave their ideas and feedback on the platform’s design and content. This input has been valuable for creating a tool which is youth-friendly.
