The training course for young online activists is a central part of the Council of Europe project Young People Combating Hate Speech Online. The training course aims to develop competences of 30 online activists to take action against hate speech online and to promote and defend human rights online. The training course also aims to empower them to develop initiatives and take an active role in the No Hate Speech Movement initiated by the Council of Europe.
