Call for participants – CHALLENGE IT: Exploring Approaches & Innovation for Combating Youth Extremism

September 9th, 2019 10:26 pm

Dear Friends of WSCF-Europe,

The European Union (EU) elections took place in May 2019 – in every EU country, people were, and are still worried about the results. To what extent will the extremist parties in the Parliament influence politics? The question is not just present in EU countries, but globally. In this WSCF training session, we will be addressing the topic of Youth Extremism leading to violence. What is extremism? How does it emerge? Why are some types of extremism more socially accepted than others? What is our role as Christians in approaching and interacting with extremism?

From the 1st to the 7th of November 2019, we will be hosting a training in Utrecht, the Netherlands, on the topic “CHALLENGE IT: Exploring Approaches and Innovation for Combating Youth Extremism”. If you are interested in this topic, ready to look beyond your own context and motivated to learn about possible actions, fill in this application form by 15th September and join us!

The participation fee for the event is €50 only and all travel costs will be covered. However, we wouldn’t want this to be an obstacle for young people who want to attend – so if you are struggling with this fee, please get in touch, and let us know. Alternatively, if you would like to donate an extra amount, on top of the fee, to fund costs for other participants – this would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please get in touch with Christiane Gebauer, WSCF Programme Coordinator, at .

This event is made possible by funding received from the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe and from the Otto Per Mille of the Waldensian Church of Italy.
