In June and July 2022, we had two workshops within the modules from the activity “training for youth & CSOs on inter-cultural, socio-economic and media literacy”. These workshops are part of the project “Youth Civic Education Platform for Countering Radicalization (Youth Counter)”.
There were more than 40 participants that enhanced their knowledge on the topics active participation of youth in the local life, participative democracy, extremism, understanding of extremism, radicalization that leads to violence, steps for early recognition of the radicalization etc.
Besides the input that they have received on the above-mentioned topics, they were acquiring the knowledge through different methods of non-formal learning. By working in groups and having space to express themselves, the youngsters had the safe space to engage, discus, participate and establish new friendships.
