  • A fair game platform idea wins the SELMA "Hacking Hate" hackathon

    We are delighted to announce that Digital Vikings, a team of four teenagers from Denmark, just won the SELMA "Hacking Hate" hackathon! In the final phase of this competition, six teams came to the Facebook Digital Learning Centre in Berlin. For two days, they further developed the innovative (tech) tools and solutions to "hack" online hate speech they initially submitted. The winning idea is a fair game platform that will be linked to popular multiplayer games. The gamers with good online behaviour will get rewards in the game, those with bad behaviour will be punished and their comments will be silenced.

  • SELMA “Hacking Hate” hackathon teams are selected!

  • Take part in our survey on online hate speech

    SELMA survey on online hate speech

    Are you a teacher or a young person aged 13-18? Then we would like to invite you to answer our survey on online hate speech. This survey will help us understand better what online hate speech is, and how young people and teachers can respond to it. It is part of the SELMA research programme which is setting the ground for our education Toolkit.

  • Building an evidence base

    What is online hate speech? Why does it thrive in an online environment, on social media and in videogames? How can children and young people be empowered to respond? To answer these questions, a comprehensive research programme has been put in place as part of the SELMA project.
