SELMA (Social and Emotional Learning for Mutual Awareness) is a two-year project co-funded by the European Commission which aims to tackle the problem of online hate speech by promoting mutual awareness, tolerance, and respect.

The overall vision of the SELMA project is captured by its catchphrase: Hacking Hate. It builds upon a Social and Emotional Learning approach to empower young people to become agents of change; it helps them to better understand the phenomenon of online hate; it provides them with tools and strategies to act and make a difference.

The project is coordinated by European Schoolnet in collaboration with For Adolescent Health, South West Grid for Learning, The Diana Award, Media Authority for Rhineland-Palatinate (LMK), and Center for Digital Pædagogik


Duration: 2017 – 2019
