Many want to act against online hate. But in the heat of the moment, to many don’t act at all. Online Roleplays help participants to develop and test their own strategies in a safe group. They gain direct feedback what is working or which kind of reaction may make it even worse. They are actively involved in the situation and feel for themselves how it feels to be attacked … or how it feels to attack others.

At the end of a training participants should have internalized one or two strategies, so they can use them to combat online hate in real.

Security is more than just data protection.

In role plays, participants confront themselves with real feelings. In order to really get involved, training courses need the safest possible framework and genuine voluntariness.
Participants must feel safe that they do not get into unpleasant situations unprepared and that they can leave them protected at any time.

The design of the training room supports the instructors in creating such a safe framework. Safety features such as anonymity through role names and avatars, introductions, before-and-after emotional state questionnaires, and automated trigger warnings make it easier for instructors to create safer group situations.

Most online role-playing games are conducted in person. The participants remain in the classroom or seminar room and participate in the role play with their devices (tablets, computers, smartphones) via WLAN.
Workshops can also be carried out entirely online. The LOVE-Storm online training room can easily be linked to a video conferencing software (Zoom, MS Teams, etc.) of your choice.

LOVE-Storm provides a number of tried and tested role-playing scenarios. All scenarios can be easily edited and adapted to the specific situation of the learning group. This means trainers can tailor role-playing games individually in a very short time. Or they can develop their own role play.

All your own scenarios and the changed versions are saved locally and can be used in the future.

All scenarios can also be shared and even printed and used without the Online Training Room.

The quickest way to get to know role-playing is to try out a role-playing game yourself with a group of friends. You can get started straight away with the free demo subscription. You have all the options of a large subscription, especially using the scenario editor to create individual role-playing games and then play them through with up to five participants in a small group.

Once you successfully run a demo roleplay, experienced trainer may run larger roleplays with a paid plan. (exceptions apply)

The best way to instruct role-playing games yourself is to take part in one of our training courses for multipliers. In the one-day basic training, the LOVE-Storm concept and the handling of the training room are introduced. To do this, you will also take part in a role play yourself and will be able to deal with it from the participant’s perspective. After the training, all participants can continue to use the training room free of charge for one year.

LOVE-Storm only offers these training courses for groups of trainers. Please contact us for more details.

LOVE-Storm for volunteers

Your user fees for the LOVE-Storm training room, help us to finance the ongoing operation of the online training room. Without your fees we cannot maintain the offer permanently.
But we want to keep this training room free of charge for students, initiatives of people affected by hate speech and other action groups against hate on the Internet. Do you want to carry out online role-playing games and do not receive a fee or salary for it?
Then simply write us a short email and tell us what you want to use the role-plays for. We will then convert your demo subscription into a free standard subscription.

LOVE-Storm for organisations

We are interested to share the Online Training Tool with other organisations.
Please contact us if you want to run a love-storm website against online hate in your own language. We are also currently looking to raise funds to make the online training tool open source so you can add it directly to your site.
