A seminar to fight hate crimes and promote educational inclusion in Greece

The Symbiosis-Council of Europe School of Political Studies in Greece collaborated with EU organizations as part of the Butterfly Effect project. The project aims to strengthen the capacity of young people, the educational community and youth organizations in addressing hate speech and crimes and to support young victims through an intersectional approach.

In November and December 2023, Symbiosis conducted a series of educational activities in four schools in Thessaloniki involving over 170 students aged between 14 and 19, providing participants with practical tools and insights to actively counter and mitigate hate speech .

Recognizing the vital role of the educational environment in addressing hate speech, Symbiosis organized a workshop for educators which took place on 8 December 2023 in Heraklion, Crete, in collaboration with the Racist Violence Recording Network and the Heraklion Development Agency, with the participation of 60 trainees. The seminar delved into the fundamental issues of violence, hate speech and racism, improving educators’ knowledge and skills to effectively address these challenges in educational contexts. By empowering diverse target groups, these activities aimed to bring about transformation for a more inclusive and tolerant society.
