- Counter Narrative: By the end of the project, credible voices will offer positive, tolerant messages in reactive and proactive circumstances. This objective may be achieved through the following means:
- Capacity Building: By the end of the project, individuals and organizations involved in peace-building or anti-violent extremist efforts, especially religious leaders, women and youth, will retain the skills, knowledge, and capacity necessary to take a stronger role in countering and preventing violent extremism. This objective may be achieved through the following means:
- Enhancing the role of credible religious and faith-based voices that support tolerance and nonviolence, and more broadly promoting educational initiatives
- Amplifying the role of women in building secure, tolerant families and communities
- Critical thinking and peace-building education efforts to help build resilience against extremist rhetoric and recruiting
- Promoting local research and information-sharing on the drivers and the new trends of violent extremism in all of its forms and on how to address them
- Preventative Outreach: By the end of the project, ordinary citizens – especially younger Europeans – susceptible to recruitment into violent extremism will experience persuasive, positive alternatives to violent thought and action. This objective may be achieved through the following means:
- Education-based programs to those at risk of recruitment into violent extremism: Programs should propose directly working with schools and communities in order to engage young people in educational activities that provide exposure to moderate viewpoints and help eliminate bias.
- Activities that bring together youth from different schools or regions, establish tolerance- and peace-building practices via in-school and/or after-school programs, and/or provide exposure to positive role models – including ordinary people and celebrities/cultural heroes.
