A 3-day training on the topic of youth violent radicalisation directed at youth workers and other professionals working with youths will be given in Cyprus from 30th August to 1st September!
Each partner of the RADEX consortium is sending two representatives into the premises of Synthesis in Nicosia, to deliver and receive training on the project’s topic. It will also serve as a final update on the developed course and its newly made modules. The importance of the learning activity to the RADEX project lies in the creation of a transnational group of like-minded professionals from the partner countries, to ensure that the online training, the modules, and the digital alert tool are transferred to the target group in accordance with the initial idea and design of the modules.
What are our objectives with this event?
The aim of the training is to support future training iteration, and to sample a training example, which will be complemented by the online course. In detail, the main objectives are to increase the partners’ knowledge about youth violent radicalisation and the effects of a positive approach towards it. It is also about learning about existing initiatives, EU programmes and other projects on the topic of radicalisation, about practical examples and case studies to understand and to identify radicalisation signs, and act before, during, and after they appear in a positive manner. Overall, this training intends to improve stakeholders’ skills through learning activities and exchange of good practices to ensure quality training and to build a network of knowledge-compatible individuals.
How will it work?
First, this meeting of partners will be the opportunity to briefly revise the current state of the project and its work done so far. Through the presentation of the project, of the online course and a workshop about the notion of radicalisation, all participants will share their thoughts and observations with their peers. The event will be followed by the presentation of each of the 5 modules by the representatives of the partner responsible for its part of the course:
- Critical Thinking and online content Filtering to prevent radicalisation
- Positive political participation
- Strengthening youth resilience through creative thinking
- A positive prevention approach: The strengthening of the resilience of young people and a positive identity formation
- Understanding radicalisation: from theory to practice.
The other participants will be able to follow this module on a model close to the one that will be available on the online course of the project. The face-to-face format will allow for group activities on case studies and scenarios, to trigger debates and stimulate discussions.
We will let you know how it goes!
