The new klicksafe flyer "Aktiv werden gegen Hate Speech" informs young people about the topic of hate speech. It shows what forms hate speech can take and where the limits of freedom of expression lie. This also includes which criminal offenses may be involved. Many tips also provide assistance on what those affected can do. Finally, there are references to information sites and links to useful hotlines and counseling services. With this flyer, we want to empower young people so that they can confidently take action against hate speech and defend themselves.
New jugendschutz.net Report "Hate against Young Climate Activists
Hardly any other topic concerns society as much as climate change. It is also one of the most pressing concerns for children and young people (source: JIM Study 2022). At the same time, the question of how to combat man-made global warming divides the public. Young people who inform themselves online and join in the discussion can quickly come across disinformation, devaluations or even violent fantasies in this context. jugendschutz.net found that this also affects comment sections of the social media sites of young and wide-ranging climate activists, which offer identification potential for young people. The report concludes that derogatory expressions of anger can unsettle and intimidate young users and make hate seem acceptable.
