This training course will give participants a deeper understanding of the concept of extremism and equip them with tools to identify, and work with, those most at risk.
Rising inclination of young people towards radical groups as well as the presence of intolerance in digital space becomes more and more disturbing especially in the context of current political discourse on migration, social rights or gender equality. The training course will tackle the radicalisation of young people and its display in the social context (youth group, neighbourhood, classroom), in the online world and on the intersection where the two worlds meet. Radicalisation leading to the violence of young people has an impact on their wellbeing, as well as on the wellbeing and stability of their communities and the entire world, as it challenges the democratic values of society. The threat of this type of radicalisation needs to be recognised and prevented through early interventions, which can help increase young people’s resilience to extremism and the use of violence or hate speech in the online world.

This training course will give participants a deeper understanding of the concept of extremism and equip them with tools to identify, and work with, those most at risk. It will focus on how intercultural dialogue in international youth work can be used to engage those who might otherwise turn to extremism.
