The No Hate Speech Movement National Campaign Committee in Norway calls for youth participants age 16-26 for «Taking action against hate!» a Nordic training seminar on Counter and Alternative narratives from 17th to 20th of June at “Himmel og Hav conference center” in Stavanger, Norway.

The Norwegian Campaign Committee (Stopp hatprat) together with the No Hate Speech Movement is organising a 4 day Nordic youth training. The training will focus on taking action on hate speech through counter and alternative narratives based on the newly published Council of Europe manual ‘We CAN!’. The course will strengthen national campaigns in the Nordic countries; identify key issues of young people regarding hate speech and how to take action; and prepare selected youth delegates for the Nordic Hate Speech Conference.

The participants will develop skills and attitudes to counter hate speech and produce their own counter speech to be disseminated online and/or offline.  These may be in the form of campaigns, actions, videos, memes, texts, music, art, posters, infographics, interviews, documentaries, storytelling, etc. A delegation from the seminar will bring a youth message to the conference of the Nordic Council of Ministers focusing on hate speech and gender perspectives.
