Training course in Rustavi
17-23 September, 2017
A training course of "No Hate Embassy - Allies Edition" was implemented in International Scout Center Rustavi and combined methodologies of non-formal education and learning-by-doing. The training logic went in line with the principles of human rights education for transformative action.
The training course recruited young people from different parts of the country with diverse profiles - students of law, medicine, psychology, NGO workers, bloggers, youth workers and activists.
The training course first focused on participants getting to know each other and building a team to work together more productively. Then the participants were introduced to the human rights timeline and the basics and background of the European Convention of Human Rights by the Council of Europe. Through the "Who wants to be a Millionnaire" quiz game participants got to know basic terms connected to human rights.
The project then focused on the issues of human rights in our communities - discrimination, hate speech and violence, specifically connected to homophobia and transphobia.
The participants also explored the theories connected to hate and violence and specifics of extremism on the regional level. To analyse the roots and context of the oppressive narratives, day 4 concentrated on deconstructing hate speech and oppressive narratives. The second part of the training course focused more on responding to oppressive narratives, best practices and designing counter and alternative narratives. On the last day participants together created a calendar of action plan and evaluated the project.
