The Training Course “UNROOTING YOUTH RADICALISATION” is a project aimed at improving the competences of youth workers for preventing radicalisation of young people. Specifically, the project is designed to achieve the following objectives:

  • train youth workers to recognize and prevent radicalisation of young people through non-formal learning methods;
  • develop new approaches and ideas for action for prevention of radicalisation of young people through cooperation of participating youth workers;
  • increase the potential of youth organizations for prevention of youth radicalisation at their local level through providing them with approaches, resources and contacts, including new partnerships with other youth organizations, aimed at combating the radicalisation of young people;
  • raise awareness for the critical role of promoting cultural diversity in preventing radicalisation of young people by stressing the benefits of the integration of European cultures and nations within the EU.

UNROOTING YOUTH RADICALISATION targets youth workers older than 18 (the preferred, but not strict upper age limit is 35) who are interested in the theme of preventing radicalisation of young people, who have the need for more knowledge and improving their skills and competences to be more active in the field of preventing radicalisation of young people, and who are ready to transfer the knowledge gained in this project to the youth work of their organization and to other colleagues, from Portugal, Serbia, Czech Republic, North Macedonia and Latvia, with 4 participants per country.
