As Europe undergoes many political changes and important decisions are to be made, the European Civic Forum and its member organizations such as GONG want to ensure that the processes are democratic and inclusive of all Europeans.
GONG is a partner in the implementation of the „Against Hate“ project, which focuses on monitoring the incidence of hate speech in the public space and raising the capacity of the police and judiciary to address both hate speech and sanction hate crimes.
An educational program for educators and teachers tackling media literacy is one of the most important educational programs that GONG has designed. It aims to equip teachers to properly educate and inform their students about the significance of media literacy today. The program also focuses on teaching students how to develop a critical approach towards newspaper, electronic and digital media.
