Mutual learning and cooperation activities as instruments for sharing concrete best practices transferable to different legal contexts, that are likely to increase efficient prevention of discrimination/hate speech
Development of counter-narratives through multilingual programs / campaigns fighting stereotypes and populism, taking creative examples from a local/small scale to a broader context
