Sfera International organized the training “Pro-Dialogue” for young people and youth workers on 27.02.2021. The aim of this training was to inform the participants about the dialogue activities and the work of the Dialogators, what is a dialogator, what did our trained dialogators learn on their first training and what will happen next on a local and international level.
After the presentations and workshops as a final and closing part of the training we started a discussion with the participants about hate speech and fake news, what is the perception and experience of the participants on these topics, which vulnerable groups do they think are most affected by hate speech in our country, what can we do to raise awareness about this, then continuing about the dialogators’ roles, how much do the participants think that we have a need of dialogators, and do they think their institutions would benefit from training dialogators.
We had a long discussion on all the above mentioned topics, which continued even after the training, during the informal networking time. The participants expressed interest in the upcoming activities of the project and in the outcomes of the project.
This workshop was organized as part of the project „PRO Dialogue”, which is a Strategic Partnership funded by the Erasmus plus programme.
