In Sarajevo, 3 trainings for youth were held from 22 to 24 June 2019, with the aim of raising awareness about the opportunities and dangers that the Internet and social networks bring. During the first training, young people explained what Cyberbullying is, how to recognize it, and how to properly protect personal information from misuse. During the second training, the youth learned what is hate speech, the way in which manifests itself and freedom of speech in comparison with hate speech. Social networks as a cover of social (ir)responsibility was the topic of the last training, and the participants had the opportunity to learn what social responsibility is and what role social networks play and how they are used as a platform for its realization. During the training sessions, the participants had the opportunity to expand their knowledge and apply it during practical exercises. Given the widespread use of the Internet and social networks, acquired knowledge will be useful for participants in everyday life. The trainings were held by trainers and educators of Youth for Peace association.
