Since nothing can be more effective and eye-opening than a few real examples of “how it should be done”, we are here to present you with a few session examples that you can freely use in your work as such or adjust it to the needs of your own training style and your target group’s learning style as well! Do you still wonder how you could show your target group the way to get from the“refugees are the cause of violence” to the “violence is fostered by fear and despair”…then this is the time for you to shine! These examples will show you the way to present to your audience the importance of countering online hate speech, the tools and the methods to develop counter and alternative narratives, and will become a warm welcome to your target group in the process of fighting against hateful narratives through the process of critical thinking.
