About HIT

The HIT project is a European project that provides young people with knowledge and tools to address hate speech towards migrants and minorities. With these tools, they can identify, and then report, these abusive speeches.

To achieve this goal, the project offers a new model of empowerment of young Europeans through the creation of "Hate interruptor Teams" (HITs), aimed mainly at people from 14 to 19 years old. These teams are supported by young mentors, and young workers. In addition, they will have the possibility of counteract hate speech and behavior towards migrants (HSBM) in their communities, at school and among their peers.

Throughout the project, different activities will be organized:

• Training sessions for young people, so that they can identify hate speech in marketing, creative campaigns and production of graphic guides. The young members of the Hate Interrupter Teams will be trained through participatory and inclusive arts-based practices, facilitated by young mentors, workers, and practitioners.
• Seminars on human rights with educators, role models, mentors and group leaders, promoting social responsibility and cooperation with HIT for their awareness campaigns.
• Workshops aimed at co-creating the awareness and collaboration campaign of different "HIT teams" and society in general

The objective of this project is to contribute to a better understanding of the incidence of hate speech against migrants and other groups, among children and young people, while raising awareness about this issue and promoting its prevention.

The project began on October 1, 2018, and will last 24 months. It will bring together nine European partners from different countries: HFC Hope For Children CRC Policy Center (Cyprus, leading partner), Rinova Limited (United Kingdom), Collage Arts (United Kingdom), Associazione Culturale Mulab (Italy), CEPS Social Projects (Barcelona), "The Smile of the Child" (Greece), Frederick University (Cyprus), Metropolisnet-European Metropolis Employment Network Ewiv (Germany) and Foundation of Gender Alternatives (Bulgaria).
