“OUR GOLD” youth project was organized by Arcirigazzi Portici, Italian leading partner, along with other EU &South-Med partners, & funded by EC within Erasmus+. The project involved 7 countries & 70 young people from Palestine, Jordan, Tunisia, Germany, France, Italy and Turkey.

The main activities were based on a series of sessions and workshops to discuss issues related to religion phobia and hate speech to stereotypes and common considerations that leaked the information - disinformation by media. The main objective of the Youth Exchanges was based on "No Hate Speech" movement.

In this project, every participant, in the collective and individual ways, reflected about their feelings when they felt targeted by a "hate speech". Different labels came up in the workshops to be discussed and analyzed critically, such as Mafioso, Black, Muslim, Woman, etc. And along with those labels, of course, different topics came out too.
