Many youth workers struggle to know what to do when a young person says something racist, homophobic etc. They want to be able to change the young persons attitude and behaviour, but don’t know where to start. At this half-day event we will share the learning from a two-year project on transforming hate speech in youth work (and similar settings).
As a participant you will:
- Receive a 120 page manual detailing how to recognise, respond to and transform hate speech
- Get access to an online platform for youth workers across Europe to discuss their experiences
- Hear from other youth workers about their experiences of responding to hate speech and training other youth workers to do so
Those involved in working with young people are invited to join us for an afternoon of interactive learning about how we can better respond when a young person uses Islamophobic, racist or other prejudicial language in a youth setting.
The Albany Centre, Glasgow
Tuesday 30th April, from 1.30 to 4.30
