All the young people who participated in the meeting were those who have participated at a local, regional or international event within No Hate Speech Movement Campaign and were aware about the campaign and its objectives.
During the meeting we were introduced about the historical basis of Antisemitism, where it comes from , what are the different approaches and understanding related to the same issue, how young people should approach to the topic and combat it via educational programs.
At the end of the meeting participants discussed various possibilities how we can cooperate with the Jewsish community in Armenia and in abroad to make links and bridges and to develop some new initiatives.
