The LGBTIQ+ Youth Net Project Transnational Meeting in Germany

Lola was in Freiberg, Gemany recently, for the transnational partner meeting of the LGBTIQ+ Youth Net Project. This is an EU-funded Erasmus+ project, to combat Hate Speech and support young people in this process. The word that sums up the meeting was: TOGETHERNESS! The team are building a mentality of togetherness in combating the hate speech and building resilience.
In today’s digital age, the issue of online hate speech is escalating, posing a significant risk to marginalised groups, including LGBTIQ youth. The LGBTIQ+ Youth Net project is committed to tackling this problem head-on. The dual mission of the project, is to combat online hate speech effectively and to establish a safe, inclusive environment for young people, particularly those in the LGBTIQ community.
The project partners discussed the progress of the project so far and discussed the one of a kind set of learning resources:
  • Reach and Teach Toolkit towards combating LGBTIQ hate speech online. This toolkit will offer practical methods and insights to youth educators, enhancing their ability to work effectively in this field.
  • Stopping the hate speech through Training and Connect. We will create user-friendly Open Education Resources and a guide for educators on inclusive teaching methods. The goal is to significantly improve knowledge, skills, and resilience in both educators and youth.


  • A Seat at the Table for LGBTIQ and non-LGBTIQ Youth.  We aim to give young people and educators a platform for networking and discussion through Local Assemblies and an online Digital Hub.
