Innovative educational resources help build resilience to extremism among younger generations
Young people are the principal recruits of extremist groups and education can play a critical role in undermining extremist ideologies and disrupting recruitment for extremist groups at the roots. ISD’s education programmes work internationally to build the resilience of young people to extremism, operating a range of projects which develop vital skills from critical thinking to social and emotional learning.
Extreme Dialogue is a series of interactive educational resources for teachers, youth workers and others working with young people. They centre on compelling films that tell the first-hand stories of former extremists and survivors of extremism.
ISD’s Digital Resilience programme helps build the resilience of young people to extremist grooming and propaganda on social media.
