What we do

International Trainings and Workshops

Related to: 22 July and Democratic Citizenship

International trainings for young people, teachers and other educators on prevention of hate speech og extremism. 


Utøya has a long history of international exchanges and solidarity. In partnership with Utøya, EWC builds on this tradition by offering international trainings for young people, teachers and other educators on prevention of hate speech og extremism. Utøya after 22 July 2011 carries a strong testament to the dangers of anti-democratic and extremist views and actions. These are global threats, and the learning- and commemoration centre at Utøya provides a very meaningful site for international exchanges of experiences and responses to threats to the values of democracy and human rights.
