Hard Topics

June 27, 2024

The Hard Topics project addresses the challenge of the lack of conversation on social issues among young people. We live in a society with rising social polarization, enclosed in media bubbles and find it difficult to have a constructive conversation with people with different opinions. The project brings new methods and approaches to dialogue training, useful for youth workers, teachers and others working with young people across Europe.

A web app is being developed to help youth workers and teachers conduct "dates of political opponents". Dialogue workshops for young people and a handbook for practitioners are also being developed. Both app and workshop will be presented and implemented during the training. The project is also exploring the extent to which school systems are training young people in dialogue.

You can access the web application at: Hard Topics

The project is implemented by partners from four countries: Austria, Croatia, Hungary and Slovenia. It is co-funded by Erasmus+ programme and runs from 2022 to 2025. It will directly involve more than 850 young people and more than 100 youth workers.
