Manu Mainil

#NoHateSpeech campaign coordinator at the Bureau International Jeunesse (Belgium)

Activist of the No Hate Speech Movement since its launch in 2013, I am currently Campaign Coordinator at Bureau International Jeunesse in French-speaking Belgium. Co-founder of the #WediActivists board game - educational tool on raising awareness about cyber citizenship - I conduct many events and trainings with youth and their adult role models. I also participated in most major #NonALaHaine gatherings and am involved in several international partnerships of the campaign (#HateFightersNetwork, #CreativityCreatesChange). Passionate about music, I created in 2008 socio-cultural association DVDLC, which manages the promotion of Francophone artists and organizes educational workshops.
