Action Synergy visited on the 6th of February 2019 the offices of Google in Brussels in order to participate in the kick-off meeting of the project Young Digital Leaders. The project, financed by Google, is aiming to promote digital citizenship, media literacy and critical thinking about the digital world in schools. It is aiming to educate young children on issues related with hate speech, cyberbullying, internet addiction, internet threats as well as other issues related with our digital life. The project is going to organise workshops in schools, workshops with parents as well as teacher training sessions. Action Synergy is going to coordinate its implementation in Greece during spring 2019.
The previous day, Action Synergy, in the occasion of Safer Internet Day, attended the event “Fighting Harmful Content- Keeping the Internet and users online” which was organized by Google and Debating Europe in relation with fighting toxic content across Europe, from extremism to hate speech.
