Idea

A programme of local, creative-led workshops to empower belonging and counter hate.

We created a national series of events using the power of video and the experience of creatives Fusion and Efe Ezekiel and YouTube creator Nadir Nahdi, to help promote a safer internet.

Workshops helped young people find a positive sense of belonging online and teach skills on how to participate safely and responsibly. Specific topics include free speech and hate speech, fake news, echo chambers and filter bubbles.
