40 young men (14-19), members of Be a man clubs, are participating in 3-day preparatory training about hate speech on Internet. Young men involved in the preparatory three-day training previously passed three levels of training on non-violence, gender equality and health, through the Be a man clubs (positive peer groups) in their schools (THS Faust Vrančić, TS Tesla, VS Gospić and HS Valpovo) and county (Union of Roma of Croatia).

Young men are already highly sensitized on issues of power relations, gender roles, labeling, communication, expressing emotion, negotiation skills, recognizing violence, sexual violence, understanding the cycle of violence, drugs and alcohol, the anatomy of men and women, contraception, activism, leadership and social marketing. That is what makes them a fantastic group of young activists to implement No hate speech movement campaign.

After mastering the skills needed for peer education on training course, they will organize four educational campaigns to raise awareness of hate speech for their 400-500 peers (14-29) from schools, cities or counties. They implement 45 minutes lasting workshops within actions, after which they invite their friends to shoot positive video and photo messages. These messages are used to engage in the Internet campaign to raise awareness about the problem of hate speech on the Internet from online services No hate speech campaign (Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo, Flickr), which has a range of 4000-5000 Youth (14-29) among Croatia.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
