International Team Coaching for Youth Workers
How to protect young people from being radicalized?
Counteracting hate speech and fake news.
14 – 21. 11. 2021, Poznań/Poland
The youth is more often than ever confronted with digital forms of violence, radical content and populism. It becomes a victim of propaganda or unconsciously shares problematic content of third parties – often not knowing, that it is the radical and populist movements that stand behind them.
Young people have a problem in differentiating and assessment of the content in the media (including social media), whether it is valuable or reliable. They often unquestioningly believe in the information acquired on news portals or other media and they very often use the Internet to violate basic values like liberty or tolerance. The youth need guidance, in order to take a clear stance against extremism and the radicalization of attitudes. It needs help with learning a constructive debate culture and critical questioning of its own judgements. Oftentimes, youth workers do not possess adequate competences or knowledge on the Internet websites frequented by the youth, and moreover they do not possess the tools to contradict the radical stances of the youth.
Because of that together with our Polish and international partners we decided to organize this training,
which will allow the participants to mutually learn, exchange experience and good practices
and to get to know the methods in the field of recognizing populist content, fake news and
to acquire abilities of counteracting populism, hate and hate speech within youth and through this,
prevent the radicalization of their stances and behaviour.
The main goal of this training is to equip youth workers with the tools and abilities that will support their work with youth in the field of recognizing and decoding populist content and contradicting hate speech.
The training will be participated by youth workers from Greece, Georgia, Germany, Poland, Ukraine and Italy. The COVID-19 situation will not allow the participants from Russia to take part in the training stationary and therefore they will partly take part in it virtually.
