Training ofPeace Weavers for Civic Action in Cameroon 2024

In setting the agenda of public discourse by raising awareness on the issues of hate speech, responsible social media use and conflict reduction, Civic Watch believes in the key role young people play in community peace building in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon. These ills are obstacles to social cohesion and peace in Cameroon. Re-assessing the impact and engagement of youths to the present social dynamics to propose solutions is key in these regions.

The #defyhatenow initiative in Cameroon acknowledges the need to engage in preventive mechanisms against hate speech and incitement to violence both online and offline. Hence, these trainings (in-person) shall host 30 youth leaders who live in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon to discuss the rise of this scourge and its negative impact on social cohesion and community development in these conflict hit regions.
