The training is based on the Council of Europe’s manual “Bookmarks combatting hate speech through human rights education” and “We CAN! Taking action on hate speech through counter- and alternative narratives” as part of the Council of Europe’s campaign The No Hate Speech Movement .  The training is held in London,  Marlborough House, on 11-15 December 2017.
