The second #SportSpreadsRespect online workshop will be held on 10 February 2023, to present the state of play on the fight against hate speech in sport in France and Germany, with a view to preparing the partner countries’ national strategies and the national #SportSpreadsRespect campaigns.
The project’s approach follows a four-step strategy: data collection and exchange of good practices, provision of guidance for the development of national strategies, design and implementation of a national capacity-building campaign and, lastly, the creation of an online resource centre granting access to existing tools to combat hate speech.
In this country specific mapping exercise, the project’s national coordinators from France, David Brinquin and Germany, Christoph Lipp , will present the findings in the form of factsheets for their respective countries and then share good practices with the four other countries participating in the project. These factsheets are essential for the development of each national strategy and #SportSpreadsRespect campaign.
The "Combating Hate Speech in Sport" joint project is co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe.
