From online hate speech to the extremism: perspectives & solutions

Training Course

26-29 June 2019 | Piešťany, Slovak Republic

This training course will give participants a deeper understanding of the concept of extremism and equip them with tools to identify, and work with, those most at risk.

Rising inclination of young people towards radical groups as well as the presence of intolerance in digital space becomes more and more disturbing especially in the context of current political discourse on migration, social rights or gender equality. The training course will tackle the radicalisation of young people and its display in the social context (youth group, neighbourhood, classroom), in the online world and on the intersection where the two worlds meet. Radicalisation leading to the violence of young people has an impact on their wellbeing, as well as on the wellbeing and stability of their communities and the entire world, as it challenges the democratic values of society. The threat of this type of radicalisation needs to be recognised and prevented through early interventions, which can help increase young people’s resilience to extremism and the use of violence or hate speech in the online world. 

Training course for youth practitioners, working directly with young people who are vulnerable to radicalization. This training course will give participants a deeper understanding of the concept of extremism and equip them with tools to identify, and work with, those most at risk. It will focus on how intercultural dialogue in international youth work can be used to engage those who might otherwise turn to extremism.


  • to improve knowledge of the processes involved in radicalisation
  • to equip participants with the ability to identify those most at risk and tools to respond
  • to make participants more aware of opportunities under Erasmus+ to support their work with young people in this context
  • to provide opportunities to share good practice initiatives to challenge youth extremism
