The Youth Exchange ‘Hate speech less was designed to provide the target audience the greater understanding and responsiveness to social and cultural diversity, that is strongly connected with the language of hatred and neglect in our society.

Nowadays, it is extremelly easy to manipulate the mass-audience opinion through the different media tricks and internet web.
