We would like to cordially invite you to participate in the sCAN Advanced Monitoring Training, which will be held by ZARA training experts in the framework of the EU project sCAN – Specialised Cyber Activists Network – an initiative by 10 European civil society organisations combatting online hate speech and discrimination.


By participating in this interactive and informative training, you will have the possibility to become an expert in the field of monitoring hate speech and counteraction, documenting the phenomenon, tackling underreporting, comparing results as well as producing effective counter-narratives. The training will include interactive sessions on how to recognise hate speech, the importance of monitoring and the art of documentation. An expert trainer from the International Network Against Cyber Hate (INACH) will join the training for a 1-hour morning session in order to give an understanding of how to use the INACH databank for documenting cyber hate.


If you want to become a monitoring expert and contribute to more thorough research on the cyber hate phenomenon as well as promote more visibility and counteraction, register for the free Advanced Monitoring Trainings via the AM Training Registration Form, which will be open for registration from February 12th onwards.
