"Prevention Violent Extremism Guide"

Erasmus+ Training Course,

Zakopane, Poland.

SUMMARY:

4 - 12/03/2020 (including travel days)

     In the face of extremism, young people need relevant and timely learning opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that can help them build their resilience to such propaganda. These competencies can be developed with the help of confident, well-prepared and respected teachers, who are in extensive contact with young people.


We will:

  • Provide practical advice on when and how to discuss the issue of violent extremism and radicalization with learners,

  • Help youth workers to create a “classroom climate” that is inclusive and conducive to respectful dialogue, open discussion and critical thinking.

     Living in a peaceful society is a long-term goal, which requires “an understanding of others and their history, traditions and spiritual values” as well as the ability “to implement common projects or to manage the inevitable conflicts in an intelligent and peaceful way.”
     UNESCO’s first Teacher’s Guide on the Prevention of Violent Extremism through education is a document which is the basis of our project within which we are going to implement its guidelines and recreate a methodology that fits particularly our partner regions.
     Living in a peaceful society is a long-term goal, which requires “an understanding of others and their history, traditions and spiritual values” as well as the ability “to implement common projects or to manage the inevitable conflicts in an intelligent and peaceful way.” UNESCO’s approach to “learning to live together” is based on this definition and implies 2 complementary learning processes:
▶the “discovery of others” which sets out to foster mutual understanding among students, and
▶the “experience of shared purposes” whereby students work together towards common goals.

 

The event in Zakopane will gather over 40 people working with young people coming from Poland, Armenia, Georgia, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Tunisia, Czechia.
