Center for Intercultural Dialogue (CID) is looking for 1 trainer to co-facilitate a seminar in the framework of the project ”Youth Alternarration: Combating Radicalization of Young People in Online Spaces”, to be held in Kumanovo in March 2019.

About the project:

Alter-narration is a 14-month strategic partnership that provides young people and youth workers with a unique opportunity to be change-makers. The digital resources and materials platform stands to be the only one of its type across Europe that has combating hate speech and violent radicalisation training and development agendas and youth engagement interwoven within the fabric of the initiative. Alter-narration will be a premium example of action learning involving a multitude of new skills for participants. The premise of Alter-narration is to empower young people within different geographical regions to conduct capacity building via digital means that relate to their existence in the EU youth policy.
