/18. 6. - 26. 6. 2022/Marrakech/Morocco
Organizator of the project: Coconut Work
The youth exchange will take place between the 18th of June and to 26th of June 2022 in Marrakech, Morocco.
About the project: Violent extremism and radicalization is a denial of democracy and of human rights. Unfortunately in Europe and beyond an increasing number of young people are being drawn into extremist movements in their search for identity and a meaningful place in society. Profound feelings of injustice and frustration about their social exclusion are among the main root causes contributing to young people's vulnerability and increase their willingness to adhere to extremist, sometimes violent groups, which offer an apparent social purpose to them.
Objectives of the project:
- To explore the concept of radicalization and extremism among youth and their roots
- Mentor the participants to lead creative online campaigns to counter extremism and radicalization online.
- Enhance the young people's critical thinking approaching information online, to foster their ability in detecting and reacting to fake news
- Raise awareness of the dangers of extremism and radicalization, showcasing different ways of prevention
- Present expressive narratives that fight the prevalence and tacit acceptance of online hate speech in all its forms
