Description of the training course:
"Civic Involved Alliance of Organization” (CIAO) is a network project to be held in Modica from 23 to 29 October 2019 and will be attended by 32 participants coming from 15 countries and representing three continents and different regions, involving organizations from Italy, Greece, Hungary, Estonia, Spain, Romania, Sweden, Bulgaria, Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, Tunisia, Lebanon and Jordan.
The central topic of the project concerns the ability of youth organizations to be involved in the fight against radicalization and discrimination. Therefore, in order to effectively combat the phenomena described, the organizations involved should create an alliance that makes available to all the organizations, best practices and methods that have been developed by each partner over the years.
The project aims to:
• create stable partnerships between the organizations involved
• develop alliances between youth organizations and the community to which they belong
• support local projects and activities that counter the social exclusion of young people in society, their limited participation and prevent their radicalization towards jihadist or racist and xenophobic ideologies.
• provide anti-extremism tools to the youth workers and NGOs responsible.
The objectives of the project will be achieved through creative workshops, simulations, peer education workshops, discussions on participation and group activities that allow young people and operators to encourage participation in the social life of their community. The methodology that will be applied will be largely non-formal, especially linked to "learning by doing" and group activities that will be used by the participants to work in contact with different cultural backgrounds.
