Resilient Youth Education Project consists of an offline campaign, which targets Slovak youth with information posters and stickers in attractive comix-like visuals, explaining the key aspects of good quality presence in the digital space. Campaign content provides comprehensive, but simple and understandable guidelines on how to react to four malicious online phenomena: trolling, hate speech, radicalization, and cyberstalking.
The activity contributes to building digital literacy and the overall resilience of the web-based young generation, as well as to cultivating a good-quality presence in an online environment. Information materials assist in developing a healthy sense of scrutiny among information consumers and emphasize the need for thoughtful reactions to negative online phenomena which tend to target individuals with various logical fallacies and emotional appeals.
The base for the project is an online didactic tool HOPE dedicated to countering negative phenomena in the digital space, which has been developed separately under the label of the Open Society Foundation.
The offline campaign is to be distributed to 150 schools and youth organizations across the country during Spring 2021. It will students of the second grade of primary schools and secondary schools and members of popular youth organizations of the age 11-16.
Packages include A3-format posters, each dealing with one malicious phenomenon, A2-format posters with general advice on authentic behaviour in online space, and stickers with the logo of the didactic tool and mottos: #IAMNOTATROLL, #IAMNOTAHATER, #IAMNOTAFANATIC, #IAMNOTASTALKER.
The materials will be as well distributed on other occasions.
