Call for participants for Cross-sectoral seminar: Building young people's resilience against violent radicalisation, 19 - 24 November 2018, Albania

The seminar aims to offer a space for reflection, sharing practices and exploring their interdependencies, between youth workers and other kinds of practitioners working in the field of building resilience against young people's violent radicalisation. The call for participants is open until 9 September.

The seminar is part of the strategy on the topic of ‘Youth work against violent radicalisation’, which has been developed by a consortium of several National Agencies for Erasmus+, youth field, four SALTO Resource Centres and the EU-Council of Europe Youth Partnership since 2016. Building young people's resilience is work that youth workers have always done. The focus is to strengthen this role of youth work in the context of increasing religious and political radicalism in today’s societies in Europe and its neighbouring regions.
