On the occasion of the Action Day for a Better Internet the No Hate Speech Movement is sharing the following questions to encourage critical reflection on what we can do to make the Internet a better place for all. The questions can be used in youth activities and awareness raising events on the Safer Internet Day on the 7th February 2017. These questions will be shared one by one at every hour and 7 minutes on the Facebook Page of the campaign and on Twitter #nohatespeech on the Action Day and young followers will be invited to answer in comments and tweets.
If you used the questions in your activities for the Action Day, consider how to give visibility to the answers, for example:
– Support the youth in writing a blog responding to one of more of the questions via: http://blog.nohatespeechmovement.org/submit-your-blog/
– Share pictures of the written statement on the campaign social media and https://nohatespeechmovement.org/join-the-movement
– Encourage youth to respond to the questions on the campaign social media on 7 Feb.
The questions are:
If you had the power questions
- If you had the power what would you do to reduce hate speech online?
