On Monday, February 27th 2017, the European Foundation of Human Rights (EFHR) was honored by invitation for the second time at the Kyviškės Primary School. Attorney’s assistant Ewelina Baliko, lawyer Leszek Jankowski and Agnieszka Malinauskaitė conducted training about the activities of the EFHR – opportunities for traineeship and volunteering, the phenomenon of hate speech, discrimination in work and private life and protection of privacy.
The students had a chance to learn what hate speech is, how to recognize it, what kind of legal procedures and penalties a person may expect to be exposed to hatred. The discrimination in job offers and privacy protection has also been briefly discussed.
Students were asked to divide into three groups. Each group was supposed to recognize hate speech in everyday life according to the examples given. Then the results of the task were analyzed together. The Foundation is satisfied that the students were active.
EFHR warmly thanks the Kyviškės Primary School for the opportunity to organize this undertaking. EFHR will continue to hold lectures on hate speech in schools to spread knowledge and tolerance values for future generations. Anyone interested in free courses provided by EFHR at the workplace or in an educational institution, please contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (+370 691 50 822).
