Poland is home to 15 listed World heritage sites, country has developed an impressive number of museums, public and private, and takes seriously its obligation to protect cultural heritage both in these museums and in the public space, through numerous plaques and monuments.
From the perspective of cultural rights, heritage resources are important as a bridge between the past and the future, and should be accessible for all to engage with. Social campaigns were conducted to build skills to identify and counter hate speech and discrimination. With videos, graphics, street events, conferences etc. the topic has been mainstreamed. The campaign coalition was joined by about 50 anti-hate speech non-governmental, public and local government institutions and organisations; about 300 activists received training.
