One of the main pressing concern of the European Union and European societies is the problem of the spread of racism and intolerance leading to extremist movements and youth radicalization. Because young people are affected by the economic and social crisis and the high rate of unemployment, they become susceptible to radicalization and to join certain groups as populists, religious extremists and terrorists. Add to this facts is the lack of knowledge of other cultural and nationalities which lead to social tensions between different minority groups.
The age of youth is characterized by effervescence, young people being easily influenced and convinced to join a certain group. But the most vulnerable groups who can be very easy influenced are young people with fewer opportunities, who are facing different social and economic obstacles.
All these events affects and threaten the unity of Europe, the good cohabitation and the understanding between Europe’s nations.
To can prevent the spread of these phenomena become one of the most pressing challenges of our times.
As a response, we designed a training course for youth workers and youth leaders to tackle these pressing issues and find strategies for preventing the spread of racism, intolerance and youth radicalization.
Research has shown the great power of sport in diminishing language barriers, cultural and religious barriers, race barriers and social barriers to promote intercultural dialog and good understanding between people. Sport has the power to unite people beyond all age, gender, religion, socio-economic background differences.
Therefore, the main aim of this project is to provide youth workers and youth leaders sport and physical activity as a tool to explore the phenomenon of radicalization, to stop the spread of racism and intolerance and to share effective methods to reach marginalized youth and to foster their social inclusion.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES:
• to increase the knowledge about the causes of the spread of racism, intolerance and youth radicalization;
• to empower participants with necessary skills and methods on youth inclusion, intercultural dialog promotion and social cohesion
• to adapt sport activities in youth work helping participants to reach marginalized youth.
• to provide participants with sport-based tools in order to prevent the spread of racism, intolerance and youth radicalization;
• to strengthen the collaboration between organization and local authorities in order to develop youth policies.

Learning methods:
The project focuses on non-formal learning methods, such as: practical workshops combining theory with practice, workshops on radicalization, racism and intolerance, debates, interactive discussion, team building activities, presentations, simulations, etc.
During the training course, participants will have the occasion to share the acquired knowledge in the community holding practical workshops within the international 3x3 basketball tournament called ”Be You 3x3 Challenge 2019”.
