Great new project on online hate speech

16 Nov 2017
Colleagues are invited to engage in ‘Positive Messengers’, a project combatting online hate speech and raising awareness of the pitfalls on online hate and online safety with young people.
It would be particularly of interest to primary or secondary (KS2-4) colleagues involved in Citizenship, e-safety, and MFL/international dimension – and an opportunity for some great cross-curricular work here.
Positive Messengers are starting with a choice of two twilight meetings in January (either 11 or 18 Jan) being held at the British Council in central London, and working towards a positive social media campaign to coincide with Refugee Week in June 2018.
 
This is being developed as a partnership between the Languages Company, the British Council, and Goldsmiths University of London.
The overall Positive Messengers project is European-funded with partners in the UK, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, and the Czech Republic.
As a possible extension if any colleagues were interested in exploring these networks to find partner schools abroad/e-Twinning, Positive Messengers would be happy to help with this along with assistance from the British Council.
