EU and Council of Europe launch “Block the Hatred. Share the Love” campaign

Kosovo

The European Union and the Council of Europe have launched a joint campaign -“Block the Hatred. Share the Love!” in Kosovo. The campaign aims to inform and educate society, especially youth, about the role that everyone has in the fight against forms of hate speech targeting groups and individuals in our local communities. This movement kicked off regionally last December and is now being launched in each of the Western Balkan partners, starting in Prishtina/ Pristina.

 

The campaign will be extended online through dedicated social media channels, but also in radio and TV appearances, public activities and social initiatives involving prominent public figures as No Hate Speech ambassadors, institutions and activists. They will share personal stories and testimonies and exchange good practice related to the promotion of diversity and equality in the region. The No Hate Speech Ambassadors include prominent public figures such as Bajram Kinolli, Rinor Gashi, Uta Ibrahimi and Amina Kaja, who is a Young European Ambassador (YEA) from Kosovo, all actively engaged with counter-narratives and behaviours.

 

The campaign is supported by the “Promotion of diversity and equality” initiative implemented within the joint European Union and Council of Europe “Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2019-2022” programme.
