YEAs in Skopje join the “Block the hatred. Share the love!” campaign

North Macedonia

At the Josip Broz Tito High School in Skopje, a creative event was held for young people as part of the “Block the Hatred. Share the Love!” campaign run jointly by the European Union and the Council of Europe. The event aimed to raise awareness among young people about the various forms of hate speech and discrimination that target specific communities and individuals, as well as to promote different ways of fighting hate speech. These include spreading positive messages of acceptance and respect for diversity through the creativity of street art and music.

 

The event included Young European Ambassadors from North Macedonia, and the YEA Co-ordinator for North Macedonia – also one of the “No Hate” Ambassadors for the campaign – Dona Srdikj, shared her empowering message in support of a diverse society, without hate speech and discrimination.

 

This awareness-raising initiative will be extended online through social media channels and elsewhere, as well as through public events. The campaign involves prominent public figures, institutions and human rights activists who promote diversity and equality in local communities and in the region through personal storytelling, testimonies and the exchange of good practice.

 

The campaign is implemented within the Promotion of Diversity and Equality in North Macedonia initiative which is part of the Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2019-2022 programme run jointly by the European Union and the Council of Europe.
