This Monday 29th of August, a third participatory workshop gathered about 15 participants, teachers and youth educators, in Belgium around the topic of caricatures, discriminations and hate speech. The goal of this participatory workshop was to collect feedbacks about the pedagogical tool “Draw me the freedom of speech” elaborated by Media Animation team in the framework of Bricks project.
Educational activities and discussions around the challenges of this topic in school and youth environment were the main content of this whole day. The main challenge identified is around the Freedom of speech as a right and out of censorship. It seems that many young people are more willing to condemn the right of freedom of speech when it’s in confrontation with their values. Teachers express the difficulty of leading a debate about this freedom of speech precisely.
