The aim of the campaign, developed by and with students, is to encourage the passive majority with visual, emotional messages, not simply to accept hate speech, but to take initial steps against it. The example of the campaign shows how visual storytelling works: mixing messages in a diverse and varied way, with humor, empathy, emotional appeal, informative tips and portrayals of the actors involved and behind them.
