Official start of COMMIT
Our EU-funded project COMMIT (“COMMunIcation campaign against exTremism and radicalisation”) helps to prevent young people (between 13 – 25) in 4 EU countries from extremism, radicalism and terrorism, providing them with skills relevant to co-create counter narratives challenging extremist online propaganda and alternative narratives through promoting democratic values, tolerance and cooperation.
The project adopts a trans-medial approach combining online campaigning and face-to-face activities (workshops, contest, events). COMMIT shall also improve the capacity of university students, media professionals, CSOs, Internet companies and stakeholders to meet the new challenges linked to extremist online propaganda and radicalisation, training them in alternative and counter narratives and their use in prevention of radicalisation through a capacity building programme.
The 2-year project is coordinated by Italy and implemented together with the partner countries Austria, Greece, Netherlands and Belgium.
