The Resources Center

GEYC Resources Center (GEYC RC) aims to digitally empower young people all over the world to create a positive change in their communities by offering access to tools, free education and networking.

Objectives:
  • offering free access to new media education;
  • providing online resources for youth and non profit work;
  • encouraging the sharing of good practices among non profit organisations at European and international level;
  • stimulating networking between non profit organisations at European and international level and multilingualism;

Our center is aimed to support "Young People Combating Hate Speech On-line" campaign of Council of Europe.



Young People Combating Hate Speech On-line is a project of the Council of Europe’s youth sector to be run between 2012 and 2014. The project aims to combat racism and discrimination in their online expression of hate speech by equipping young people and youth organisations with the competences necessary to recognize and act against such human rights violations.
