About the course
This course is being implemented in the framework of the STAR project – Stand Together Against Racism, which is a 3-year collaboration among 4 partners from Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, and Poland, with the aim to counter invisible racism and other forms of intolerance in the everyday lives of young people, including hate speech, through preventive measures, youth work, and non-formal education. Within 2 years of the project, the partner organisations worked with young people on the local level testing and upscaling approaches and tools, and in the last year of the project, we aim to share them with youth work practitioners by implementing this international training course, developing the manual and the MOOC – Massive Open Online Course.
More information about the project you can find here.
