Andreas Konstantinidis, PhD - Coordinator
Iasonas Iasonos - Researcher
The project will develop a new model of European youth empowerment to tackle racism, xenophobia and discrimination aimed at migrants. At its heart is the concept of ‘Hate Interrupter Teams’ (HITs) - task groups of young people (14-19) developed through participatory, inclusive arts-based practices, facilitated by youth workers, mentors and guidance practitioners, intervening in hate speech and behaviour towards migrants (HSBM) in their communities, at school and among their peers. MDL is responsible for developing the online preventing tools including a web platform and storytelling smartphone application.
