Promoted by UNESCO, the Campaign Unite4Heritage purposes to defend cultural heritage and diversity around all over the world.

It is designed to empower the mobilization of governments and all heritage stakeholders in response to the deliberate damage to cultural heritage, especially in the Middle East. Moreover, it invites everyone to oppose to any extremisms and radicalizations by celebrating the places, objects and cultural traditions.

Among its areas of interest, it is important to highlight that Unite4Heritage is engaged in “cultural diversity education”, which is a topic strictly connected to BRICKS’ aims. The coalition works to ensure young people can use the Internet without risk of radicalization, and to Counter Online Hate Speech through media and information literacy. It rises up against any types of extremist and negative narratives that call for attacks on cultural diversity.

Funded by Facebook, the “Counter-Narrative Toolkit” website was created in order to push back against violent extremist content online. Furthermore, it was designed following the recognition that many of the individuals that are best positioned to produce credible counter-narrative messages do not always have the skills to do so.

The toolkit is completely free and it offers a guide to produce counter-narrative content and campaigning. Thanks to this site any individual or organisation looking to create counter-narratives can plan, create and promote its own campaign or social media strategy.

Let’s plan your campaign by following step-by-step tools and video tutorials!
