The “Arguments Against Aggression” project was implemented from September 2018 – February 2021 The general objective of the project was to equip citizens with communication and argumentation skills that they can use in social media sites or real-life interactions whenever they are confronted with aggressive, racist or xenophobic messages, inequalities, and gender violence. In this way, they are able to transform unproductive shouting matches or passive-aggressive avoidance into actually productive conversations that should end with participants having a clearer understanding of each other’s views, and build skills and motivation to take action against injustice.
The partnership comprised a multidisciplinary team of seven European partners, which represents the target groups and expertise needed for training development. This initiative was supported by the European ERASMUS+ funding scheme 2018 – 2021.
