The hate speech is not only in our lives but also in lives of people around us. We tried to figure out why the hate speech exists. Every member of our project tried to do something that can help to decrease “Hate speech”
Proposals for this project came from Paul- one of the leaders from Germany ESW youth club – he is the main man who explained everyone the goals of our project, gave advices.

We could ask questions on any topics which we were interested in. At the end of the day lovely Estonian dinner was waiting for us.
The main aim of project was The Movie about minorities, refugees and violence. During the project we had talked a lot about what we made and what we have to do. Each group showed their films teasers and talked little bit about idea of the film. Jacob and Achim – two Germans – helped us with this task.
