Online Course for Moderators

Respect Zone has developed a 6-hour online course on how to moderate online hate speech. This was made possible with the support of CEJI as part of the European Commission’s SCAN project.

The course is aimed at people from 16 to 35 years old who are either self-moderators – for their own online page – or professional moderators.

The objective of this course is to develop the abilities of young people to identify, monitor, counter and moderate digital spaces so that they are: 

  • Respectful and inclusive,
  • Without hate speech, tolerant,
  • Creates a culture of responsibility …
