The project ‘Say No To Hate Speech: Young People Empowered’ was funded by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe and implemented by AEQUITAS. In the framework of this project AEQUITAS created an online platform against hate speech.
The official launching of the platform took place on the 12th September 2016 from 10-12.30 at the EU House in Nicosia. The speakers who opened the launching were the Commissioner for Volunteerism and NGOs, Dr. Fabienne Baider (University of Cyprus), Dr. Panagiotis Stavrinides (University of Cyprus), Mr. Willy Totoro, President of the Association of Recognised Refugees in Cyprus and Mr. Giorgos Polykarpou, Vice-President of the Cyprus Youth Council.
