Need an idea for an educational activity? Want to do something around the 11th February and not sure where to start? Join our European Action Day and get inspiration by a wonderful exercise with young people! 

With this European Action Day, you can be among the first teachers/trainers in Europe to use the No Hate Speech Campaign education pack titled “Bookmarks” on combating hate speech online through human rights education. You can rediscover plenty of educational activities in COMPASS and COMPASITO and you can even play an educational game related to safety online.

You can also share what tools you are using with children and young people on Discussion Forum of the No Hate Speech Movement website.

We have three offers of educational activities that you can do on 11 February, offline, to raise the awareness of young people about the Internet safety and how they can contribute to it.


My life is not a show  ( In Compass on Page 232 )

This is an activity of about 90 minutes in which young people can learn about cyberbullying and how they can deal with it!


Picture ways out of violence ( in Compasito )

This is an activity in which children or young people illustrate a conflict or violent situation with a ‘human photo’ and then illustrate how it can be solved without violence. The activity does not only apply to the Internet, but hey, be creative – ask your participants to think about conflicts in the online world and how they could be solved while staying safe and without violence!


This is a great chance to use one of these activities from the freshly published Bookmarks, the educational tool of the No Hate Speech Campaign.

  • Freedom unlimited  (on Page 69)- Participants explore the idea of freedom of expression using a number of case studies. They need to decide what to do with comments or communications which are controversial, abusive or potentially dangerous.
  • Confronting cyberbullying (on Page 66)– This is an activity in which participants identify their likely response to various bullying scenarios – and discuss alternative courses of action.
  • What do you wear online? (on Page 130) – Participants fill out a diagram to show their preferences in sharing particular information online and discuss ways of being more cautious when sharing personal information online.


If you work with younger young people or children you may want to involve them in this amazing educational game about online safety called Wild Web Woods! And you can also download the Teacher’s Guide here.

So, with all these options, you can run an activity with your group and write us how it went and what young people brought up! Send us their ideas, photos etc. so we can make this space also a space for sharing!  Did you use another tool than this activity? Great! Share it with us in the Discussion Forum or on our Facebook Page.
