"Share the love" campaign - Montenegro
In December 2021, the raising awareness campaign “Block the hatred. Share the love!” started rolling in Montenegro, aiming to inform various local audiences on the danger of hate speech in different communities.

Hate speech is on the rise across Europe, jeopardising social cohesion and putting human rights under threat. In the Western Balkans region hate speech particularly targets members of vulnerable groups, who have already been affected by stigma and discrimination during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Block the hatred. Share the love!” campaign will be extended in Montenegro to reach key audiences and inform them about the risks of hate speech and about how to combat it.
Civil society activists, journalists, students and all those who think that love can fight hate in Montenegro, are invited to be part of this campaign by following and sharing the posts, by using their messages to respond to various forms of hate affecting their private and community life or that of family members, friends or any other individuals.

The campaign is implemented under the joint European Union and Council of Europe action on “Promotion of diversity and equality in Montenegro” and will take place through public initiatives and online activities on dedicated Facebook pages of the Council of Europe Programme Office in Podgorica and of the campaign pages.
