CONTEXTPlenty of information sources, various ways to get the information, mass media, no places to discuss about actuality, a kind of loneliness in front of all those forms of information, a lot of reason to question ourselves about how the information is treated by youth and their look on the freedom offered by the Internet. In our daily work, especially during our mentoring of youth we noted the need of information and communication around the Internet and networks, generally around virtual space.OBJECTIVES OF THE TRAININGThis project aims to allow youth workers to have reflexion time on the various subjects in a personal way first and as a youth worker after. The participant who will follow this training will be able to animate debates, workshops for the youth to bring them to this kind of reflexion.By organising this TC, we wish to answer the following goals :- Allowing youth workers, youth leaders to have a better understanding of the youth's position toward the society (online or offline), the citizen's role, the impact on the daily life of citizens, on democracy, the numeric identity and Internet user's responsibility.- Getting knowledge, through a non-formal learning process, on the User's responsibility, numeric identity and become "resource persons" for the youth with whom they are developing projects.- Thinking together and exchanging on the space that Internet and social network have in the youth life, the impact on social relations, group dynamics, adults/youth relationship. A "step to the side" toward the everything connected online, the access to information without taking the time to analyse the sources.- Discovering methods of research relating to reliability of the information : how to recognize a reliable source of information, develop a critical eye, an intellectual self-defense toward media (TV, radio, Internet, newspaper, ...). Being a toughen up and informed citizen.- Exchanging on the position of youthworkers in the support of youth regarding thoses questions : which tools ? Which methods ?NUMBER AND PROFILE OF THE PARTICIPANTSThis training with gather 27 participants : 3 persons from 9 different countries.They will have to be involved in action with youth and throughout with various target group to spread the results of our work during this week. They will have to give communicate about their work and the project leaded after their comeback to allow us to valorize also after the project. Finally, they will have to be ready to get involved in the "NO HATE SPEECH" campaign. METHODOLOGYThe methodology, based on the reinforcement of non-formal education values, training sessions, workshops, debates, and the structure of this European training will serve to further encourage an active involvement of each participant. This will allow participants to be able to develop competencies and new tools for the strengthening of awareness in hate speech on the Internet approach in their organisation. RESULTSThe main result expected is the awareness of the participant around the topic of NICTs and how to deal with it in daily professional life with the youth. Linked to that, it’s important for us that the participant ended their training with some methodology to aware youth about the danger of over exposition on the Internet and hate speech. Practically, we aimed to realize a tool (video, MOOC, Pecha Kucha…) to spread the results of our reflexion and our various practices around this topic. We also will do a presentation of our work in front of the youth workers of the city, to experiment our tool and allow those who will not be a part of it to enjoy the results.
