Read the project’s toolkit
DIALECT 2’s team has delivered the project’s toolkit.The handbook aims to assist coordinators of youth activities by providing examples and information on ways to support young people in digital media environments to enhance their civic participation.
It contains guidelines for developing counter-arguments or alternative narratives to combat hate speech and promote digital resilience, especially in online environments. This handbook suggests various communication and pedagogical approaches, both online and offline, as well as tools to challenge the narratives that perpetuate and legitimize hate speech.
It aims to enrich the tools of coordinators for young people, educators, and activists, who are already involved or want to be actively involved in human rights and education actions.
The toolkit is addressed to non-profit organizations, schools, sports clubs, and community centres, that want to use football and media literacy skills as a multi-faceted tool to combat racism, xenophobia and exclusion, training trainers and mediators around digital media literacy.
The handbook is based on the firm belief that the internet is a public space and therefore all the principles of a democratic society can and should apply online. In this light, young men and women have a particularly important role to play online, in terms of combating hate speech, detecting fake news, and leading by example as active digital citizens. They can even be the defenders of human rights on the internet.
