The socialization of young people usually takes place in the family, among peers and at school. Specifically, teachers have one of the most relevant roles in the formation of young people. They will influence the development of different skills that will be fundamental for the future of young people. Among these skills, some have been found to be protective factors in the face of radicalization.

ARMOUR 'Building community resilience through educational approaches' Workshop strives to show different tools to teach these skills in the educational environment. It is scheduled for 28 April 2021 as part of Day 3 of the European Conference on Preventing Polarization & Violent Radicalization 'Strengthening Resilience, Fostering Innovation, Consolidating Lessons & Pioneering New Frontier' (#EUPrevent).

Registration for the workshop is available at:

Cristina Ivan (MVNIA) and Valentin Nicula (MVNIA) leads the workshop sharing their efforts and experience stemming from the implementation of ARMOUR Work Package 3 'Experimental Labs'. The Experimental Labs are designed to represent a safe chamber where participants can experience alternative ways of responding to push and pull factors of social polarisation and extremism, and develop skills and competences on both individual and community level.

The discussions are moderated by Javier Ruipérez (FUNDEA).

The #EUPrevent Conference is jointly organized by six ISF-P funded projects. Over 30 different organisations and more than 150 practitioners are coming together to share their lessons learned, the outcomes of their projects and discuss issues like (violent) radicalisation, increasing polarisation in our societies and how different projects approach to strengthen the resilience of civil society.
