The LOUD project’s alternative narrative campaigns

Created within the LOUD project, youngsters from the project’s nine partner cities developed alternative narrative campaigns in all its stages: from design to evaluation.

Developing intercultural awareness and combating prejudice are essential to promote social inclusion and strengthen social cohesion. Mobilising citizens, in particular young people, is important to respond to the challenges posed by acts of violence motivated by intolerance, inequality and discrimination.

The LOUD project strengthened the capacity of local and regional authorities to promote youth participation in preventing discrimination and empowered young people to fight hate speech through alternative narrative campaigns. The result?

114 youngsters participating in the fight against discrimination, intolerance and extremism

9 campaigns on inclusion, diversity and equality

  • to counter all forms of intolerance and extremist speech
  • to build positive messages for young people, by young people
  • to spread powerful messages against racism, discrimination, exclusion, inequality and fake news.

9 messages based on human rights, respect for differences, freedom and equality

Because young people play a leading role in building a more tolerant and multicultural society
